    I really need a way to run two displays at a resolution of 1366 x 768 on my Macbook Pro. Would it work if I bought one of those usb video cards and ran one of the monitors off that and the other off the Macbook Pro's DVI out? Would I be able to mirror the two display? I dont want to buy one of the matrox boxes that makes my Macbook Pro think the other two displays are just one big one? If you have a way to run the two displays another way that would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Not the exact usb video card but the basic principal:

    Yes thats what I was originally looking at but I read that it only treats the two monitors as one. But I was not thinking properly because I can just run one Tv off of the Macbook Pro's DVI out and one off of DualHead2Go. Would that work?
