I just received my new MacPro today. There is no video cord!
So, which video cord do I need to buy? I have an Acer 23 inch monitor.
I can't believe Apple sends me a new MacPro with no video cord ... !!!
It's been awhile, but I am sure my MacPro came with a DVI to VGA adapter. Any monitor should come with a DVI or a VGA cable, so you should have no problems. Cables come with monters, not with computers.
If you are using an LCD monitor you should use the DVI interface, not VGA. Many cheap manufacturers only include the VGA cable as it is the lowest common denominator. The VGA will not get you the best image on your monitor. It is not Apple's fault that there are cheap companies out there.
