Hook up two monitors to imac


Graphics workstations and monitors have come a long way over the past few years. Dual monitors on Apple computers, which used to be the domain of high end design shops and engineering firms, can now be employed by even small businesses. Setting up dual monitors on a newer Apple computer is as simple as hooking up the new monitors and letting the computer do the work.

If you don't have a graphics card that can handle dual monitors, it's not difficult to add one that can.

Connect each of the displays to the inputs on the back of your computer's graphics card. Plug in each of the external monitors and turn on the power. Select "System Preferences" from the Apple menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
