I just get an Apple Cinema Display 22" LCD to replace my SGI 1600SW. I need a Graphics Cards with DVI Output that will support 1600x1024. Please give me some suggestion. Thanks.

The apple displays use a proprietary interface, in which the signal is not only the DVI, but also the power. I don't think u'll be able to use it on pc...unless u splice wires.

I think u may lose some image quality, but anyway, for DVI, get a GF3.

Does the DVI on most of GF3 will support the resolution, 1600x1024?

well what do you want to do with your computer?
it might be pointless to get a super expensive card. I'm pretty sure the Geforce 3s, and Radeon 8500 cards will do that resolution if your monitor supports it.
And if not you can always "enhance" your drivers so that it will.

Thing is it's through a DVI output, and hacking the drivers can get bitchy and annoying.
