The monitor uses the proprietary Apple Display Connector (ADC) which is a DVI + USB. So see what type of connector it has on the other side and see if it will plug into the MacPro. If it won't, show us a picture of the connector and someone who knows anything about the MacPro will tell if it's possible to connect these two.

Show us the connectors you have on the back of the MacPro. In that era, DVI was the new type of connector that was used which ended up replacing the VGA connectors, so I'd be surprised you couldn't plug this into the MacPro.

The DVI doesn't fit the MacPro. I've attached a photo of the connector.
The picture you've posted is of an Apple Display Connector, as mentioned by @RazOrEdge. If the graphics card on your Mac Pro has DVI outputs, you'll need a DVI - ADC adapter

Thank you very much. After just a quick search, very pricey. Can I put a video card from a G5 into a
Mac Pro/3. The Mac Pro is model # A1186, EMC 2113.

I found a picture of DVI - ADC adapter. I don't see how that will work. The monitor cable would not fit either of those ends.
