    Hey guys!

    So, with my government check, I'm going to be building myself the gaming PC I've always dreamed of. I'd love to build a hack-in-tosh, but you know how it is, sometimes you just need a PC, to go along with the Mac. So, I plan on streaming SC2 as I play, and I'd love a second monitor up to check on my stream, my FPS, things like that, and I was wondering: is it possible to set up my MacBook Pro AS an external monitor to my PC, when I'm playing?

    Thanks for any/all help!

    This was just posted in another thread. I've never tried it, but see if it meets your needs:

    That looks like a pretty sweet program! Unfortunately, I'm at work so I can't download and try it out, but it looks like it only works if your main machine is a Mac...is that right? If so, my main machine will be a PC, so I dunno if that software will work with it.
