Now that I have my 23", I am wondering how to connect my wife's 15" so that I can have both screens going at once.<br>I know about the DVI to ADC adapter, but think it is only good with the powerbook or a dual connected card in the destop. (?)<br>My question is whether there is a connecter that will connect 2 flatscreens to a video card that has one plugin.<br>Will this http://www.apple.com/displays/adapter.html do the job? (they were out and I forgot to ask about how to do it)<br>Thanks again.<br><br>

Hey, Sherm!<br><br>AFAIK, you cannot (nor should you try to) connect two displays to a video card with only one output ...<br><br>Given the above, it sounds like you'll need another video card to drive the second display ...<br><br>The DVI-ADC adapter should work with any video card with a DVI output ...<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
I have heard about gadgets that split monitor screens, but I would thing they cost a fortune. What I have is a gadget that will cloan a monitor with 8 monitor outputs. It only supports up to 800X600. I use it to make large presentations by hooking up 4 monitors and cloaning them. Besides that, I have no idea.<br><br>___________________________________________<br>I'm just another Mac user at an 8 hour day Dilbert style cubicle job....<br>

Or you could do what I did- get a 2nd card- I got a 7000 Radeon PCI and just hooked up the 2nd display to that.<br><br>I was getting flickering on the 2nd monitor when I hooked it up to the DVI port using a DVI-VGA adapter...<br><br>

Running two video cards at the same time *should* work fine, although you might have some driver issues if you have cards from different manufacturers, so keep that in mind when shopping ...<br><br>Also be sure that if you go with single-card/dual-output route, one of the outputs is ADC so you don't have to also purchase a second adapter =)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
