    30" Cinema HD to work with newer PC video card's?
    I am a Mac laptop, and LCD fan, but a hardcore gamer, so I use PC's for that type of stuff!

    Anyhow, my question is, does anyone know if they newer PC video card's (such as the nVidia 6800 Ultra *512MB* version) will support the 30 inch Cinema HD display, as they have dual DVI, and a ton of memory?

    Thank you,

    Yan Booth

    I have never understood why the 30in takes such a high end video card to run it... I have heard that Matrox makes a video card that can run the 30in displays but I don't know about ATI and NVidia.

    Even if a PC video card could run that high of a resolution in Windows, I doubt you are going to find a system with enough power to run games that high.

    Oh, too bad, it won't work out too well.
    Thanks anyhow

    Thats a good point... I guess I will stick with the 23" Cinema HD, which is good, because the price just dropped!

    Go with the Dell 24in, I have heard good things about it and it is cheaper.

    Yeah the dell LCDs are really good quality, and lets face it apples displays are slightly more expensive.....

    I've been back and forth about which I want. The Dell 24" vs the Apple 23". The thing I keep coming back to is that the Apple casing/styling just looks better. It makes me sad that I'm willing to spend an extra $400 or so for the styling but I keep coming back to it.
