Hi I'm wondering if I should purchase the mxo or mxo2. One reason I was leaning toward the mxo2 is that I already have two monitors hooked up to my Intel Mac Pro G5 via the DVI ports, and the mxo would take up one of them. Editing in Final Cut I need all the desktop space I can get. It seems that using the PCIE expansion slot the MXO would allow me to still be able to use my current set up.

Question 1: Would the G5 be able to support the two monitors, plus the 30" HDTV hooked up via my hd decklink pro, and the mxo2 via another PCIE expansion slot?

Question 2: Accurate color correction is the primary reason for my purchase, I have heard great things about the MXO and the 23" cinema display, what would be the equivalent display to use for the MXO2 for accurate broadcast color monitoring?

Ok, some confusion here ... is it an Intel Mac Pro, or is it a PowerMac G5 ?
The MXO2 requires a Mac with an Intel-based processor, so if your Mac is a G5 then the MXO2 is not the right choice. You can always go with the MXO tho, if you want a dual monitor setup for your workspace then you just need to pick up an extra Graphics card ACD 23" and you're away.


Hope it helps
Andy
