External screens don't have to be Apple branded to work with the MacPro ( or with any Mac) though... The 5K displays from Dell seem to have excellent reviews and they're not crazy expensive ( less than a 1000$ )

Ironically, Dell introduced that screen originally at 2500$ , then had to lower it after Apple released the 5K iMac for less than Dell's screen alone ( 2200$ ). Apple undercutting everyone's prices is not something we're always used to
