Dude, any idea on the cost of the Matrox Parhelia? Thinking of getting another 19" LCD to do dualie.Wai said:but for the sake of doing colour calibration, i will suggest u to get a PCI graphic card for your secondary monitor. otherwise, u will need Matrox Parhelia for dual display using one card (for proper color calibration)
Thanks Wai for the good information.Wai said:are u planning to get 2 x 30" apple display?
else any graphic card with DVI connector should work, but if u are planning to get dual display in near future, of cos it will be better to get one with dual DVI connectors.

Would appreciate if you could help me clear the confusion. Thanks!Apple said:Dual Link DVI
The 30-inch Cinema HD Display requires the next level of DVI connectivity dual link to drive the massive amount of pixels to the screen. And the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL graphics card delivers, with the most advanced graphics engine available. This card, designed specifically to support the dual link DVI connection, delivers 2560 by 1600 resolution. Even better, it can drive two 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays, giving you the ultimate creative canvas.
nope, only if you plan to have TWO LCD display on ONE card, then u will have problem with calibration unless u get matrox parhelia or a 2nd card for the 2nd displaybenny said:So in summary, putting the Apple 30" screen to the PC is not problem except for monitor calibration. I should get a Matrox Parhelia to go around this problem. Right?
Not sure about the 30" but I know someone's got a 23" Apple display on a PC...benny said:I got weak eyes and need a bigger monitor. I was consider the 30" apple and didn't realise that Dell has one coming up.
From what I understand, the 30 inch displays have both the DVI cable plugging into the display in order to generate the 30" format. Whilst I have seen it at the PC shows, they have always been on the Apple G5. Was wondering if anyone has it on PC as well.
certainly any windows based PC can use apple displayjeremyftk said:Not sure about the 30" but I know someone's got a 23" Apple display on a PC...
