    1. Can I add 2 external Monitors? I understand there is a device called USB VGA Adaptor 2.0 which essentially works off the USB port. I was wondering if anyone ever tried this. My PowerMac6.3 has a mini-vga output port but I can't find this cable anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get one?

    Thanks

    You must use the mini-VGA out to add an external screen. All USB video out devices use a chip called a DisplayLink chip. This chip does not have any PowerPC Mac OS X drivers. By default your machine will only mirror what is on the internal screen to the external. You will have to use a script called Screen Spanning Doctor to enable it to have an extended screen.
