What adapter is needed to use an apple cienama disply 27 inch on a pc with an asus 7870 video card, has standard disply port, dvi, hdmi. Anyone have any suggestions on the best adapter, money not an issue, using a thunderbolt on my Mac mini, would like to add a second monitor for my newly built pc extreme

Thanks for the email heads up, was not on my mind at the time and besides of all people whole should's me, thanks also for your answer. I have a mini disply port on my video card too, already gave it a shot on my thunderbolt 27" straight up and it did not pick it up, really did not think it would because the card does not have the thunderbolt io, just a mini disply port. Tried using the dvi display adapter too on the mini and it too would not work, so to play it safe, I went ahead and bought the next best thing, the dell ultra sharp isc 27" monitor instead about the same price anyway. I really wanted the monitors to look the same and function the same, webcam and all, so just going the safer route ordered a new Cisco router with aps 450+450, Logitech webcamHD. Someday I am going to give it a try to to see one of these days, but the sharp should be a good choice, 6ms respond time better than the TB 12ms anyway, both are ICS monitors, great specs just going to eat me for awhile, thanks for the reply though, I appreciate any poster that tries to lend a hand, even us retired it Gus have problems. Thanks again
