    Hi, I just got a wide screen monitor, I am hopping to add a third display to my iMac, Can anyone recommend a good external USB video card, prefer to have DVI out?
    My iMac is running Lion 10.7.1

    Why would Hoyt want a third monitor? What do you you use your mac for?

    Because they want to view more on their screens. Very handy for editing, working on web sites, etc etc etc.

    Check macsales.com; they offer a Newer Technology USB to DVI/HDMI/VGA dongle, on sale as well. I'd be interested to see how it works. I've seen reviews that suggest some of these are kinda slow, but with the third monitor I'd have relatively static windows anyway. They're using a beta Lion driver.
