    Hi all,

    Sorry if this was discussed before, I have a base model retina and I'd like to drive dual external Dell U2711 Monitors.

    The monitors have DisplayPort (large), HDMI and Dual-link DVI.

    I'm currently running one of the externals via a Thunderbolt-Displayport cable.

    Can I just get another cable and run the second display as well? Will my retinal support both externals at 2560x1440?

    I realize I'd be sacrificing both thunderbolt ports but I don't have any other peripherals that use them.

    Thanks in advance!
    Sasha
