New *square* 1:1 26.5" LCD monitor 1920x1920

Does anyone have a EIZO FlexScan EV2730QFX-BK monitor? I currently own an 
NEC MultiSync 17" LCD that does sync-on-green and works with my SGIs and 
other older systems. However, I'd love something bigger. The problem is 
that when I use widescreen monitors on systems which cannot display 
widescreen resolutions, everything is pretty distorted.

My guess is that, since this is a newer monitor, it's not going to support 
sync-on-green. I'd still be tempted to get one, simply because I've grown 
to dislike widescreen for productivity uses (they are great for 
entertainment). However, at over $1k, it'd definitely have to support my 
retro gear to make it worth it. Now that I look, it says it only supports 
displayport and dual-link DVI. That means I'd need a scan converter to use 
it with older gear. Ugh. Well, anyone go down this road already?
