Keep in mind, is that the apple cinema display?

Keep in mind with the inputs, GeForce cards usually don't have display port...

Yes, I've ordered Atlona DP 400. That, hopefully does the trick at full resolution.

Finally, decided to go for the GTX 580 MSI Lightning Extreme 3GB. Coupled with Asrock Extreme 4 mobo.

Will SLI it later when time comes!

Thanks for all the advice.

yep the 590 will cap at 1.5gb vram. go 580 3gb for futureproofing or 6950/6970 2gb xfire for better than single gtx580 performance.

AMD 6990 is probs best dual graphics card solution, GTX 590 has bad VRMs and poor overclock ability, Although the GTX 590 is a beast of a card, It is far overpriced. So i recommend either AMD 6990, GTX 580 3GB or AMD 6950 Crossfire.

VRMs are the same as on the 580. just 1 phase less for each GPU. disinformation is bad
