DVI Male to Mini Displayport Female

I have an older Mac Pro with only DVI out. I am trying to use a newer apple display port monitor. How do I do this? Can't find an adapter.

Ideas?

No can do. Need to get a video card with DisplayPort. Radeon 5770 would be your best bet.

It needs to be the Mac edition and make sure it comes with the power cables.

Just by using a cable, not possible. However converters from DVI to Displayport do exist. One I found is this - [www.amazon.com]. Have not used one myself, but StarTech electronics usually work okay.
