Which is the best display for Mac Pro MD771LL/A
I am confused whether to buy 27" Cinema or 27" Thunderbolt display for MD771LL/A. Please clarify which would be better.

As of now, the Mac Pros do NOT support Thunderbolt. Only the new Macbook Pros do. Stick with the Cinema, there's not that big of a difference anyway.

As odd as it seems, Mac Pro doesn't yet have a Thunderbolt port or capability, unlike the latest iMacs, and all other Macs since 2011.
The Thunderbolt and Cinema displays are essentially the same, save for the porting arrangement.
You need the cinema display, as you can output to DisplayPort, HDMI etc from Thunderbolt, but not the other way around.
