    i have an imac intel core duo late 2006 model... with a 20 inch display... it has 128mb vram and i'd like to add another display

    i run my mac with the highest resolution of 1680 x1050 and i'd like to keep this resolution and add another display maybe another 20" screen

    my question is... has anyone done this? and what are the performance results... will there be any lag or problems? thanks!

    Yes, you can do it and you won't have any problems with it.

    The only problem you will find is once you start using 2 screens you will never go back to 1. :D

    I used to run my 2006 Imac with a second screen, but I had the upgraded video card in mine. I never had any problems with it.
