    Im looking to add a second external display to my 17" C2D MBP for working with Final Cut Pro....

    -I would be working w/ lid closed, and one of the displays will be connected via the DVI port.

    -I have found i can add a second video card somehow (im guessing through USB, FW, or the ExpressCard 34 slot) OR i can split the signal using something like DualHead2GO.

    -Which one of these would be better, adding a Video Card, or splitting the DVI

    -What is a good Video Card to use/ How would it connect?

    (Both Monitors are Flat CRTs so they can be VGA or DVI)
