Dual DVI card for 2 30" Cinema Displays-full rez
 
Hi,
Looking for a card comparable to the GeForce 8800GT, which shipped with Macs prior to the single DVI plus Mini DVI config they are now using.
The Mini DVI-port adaptor brings the resolution down too low. I need to run both at 2560/1600 (full resolution)

The 8800 card is nowhere to be found anymore. Used a Raedon RV630 which imploded when I went to Snow Leopard.
Anyone suggestions most welcome.
Thanks

Mel

Mac Pro 2x2.26 Quad Nehalem

You really can't find an 8800 on eBay?

I have a great ATI 4870, but I think it will only do one at that res.

Hmm.

There's one, lots on eBay, but says for 'second' generation Mac Pro, and your's is probably third generation?

Thanks Tim. Have been avoiding ebay, but guess I'll try there. Thanks for the link.
