Dongle for headless operation on Mac Pro

I'm getting a used Mac Pro (2010 dual quad-core) to use as my Security Spy system. On my Mac mini I use an HDMI headless dongle to make sure that the graphics card is working for acceptable Screen Sharing performance. The Pro has a DVI port and I think some Display Ports. Anyone have any experience with using these headless? What do I need?

I haven't owned a Mac Pro type machine since the Bondi Blue one, whatever it was called. Power Mac G3?

Thanks!

Re: Dongle for headless operation on Mac Pro

Something like this should do the trick plugged into one on the display ports:

Or you could go the DVI route:
