  1. Get an ATI card. The 5870 is pretty much a GTX 480 or an ATI 5970 which is a lot better.

    ATI cards have mini-displayport which can drive an apple monitor. The alternative would be buying an active min-displayport to DVI adapter for $40. Quite expensive for just an adapter so ATI cards are probably a better bet for your money.

    Im also surprised you didn't get a 5970 since you are getting such an awesome computer.
    The Mac displays are very nice IPS panels.
  2. Thx ,why i didnt buy a hd5970 is because of its energy cosumption and heat not size cause i use cosmos s

    According to these two reviews. The GTX 480 actually produces more heat and consumes more power than the 5970.
