Using a thunderbolt display with a PC?
I was wondering what I would need to connect the new thunderbolt displays to my computer.
I have a Gigabyte GTX 770 Graphics card with HDMI, dual link DVI, and display port. I have tried the Kanex C247DL with no
success and was wondering what adapter I need to make this setup work.

Yes, it is possible to use Apple Thunderbolt Display with PC. You will need an ASUS ThunderboltEX II adapter with compatible ASUS motherboards, such as Z97-DELUXE (NFC & WLC).
It works with both integrated and discrete graphics.

I have the same graphics card, and a late 2009 imac with Minidisplay port entry.
Using a Minidisplay cable which connects PC -> iMac works fine. You can use CMD+F2 to switch input on the Mac.
Using a Thunderbolt cable however does not work. It needs to be a Minidisplay to Minidisplay Cable.
