    Need help with extra display
    I am using Final Cut Studio to work on my first film.. I want to buy a monitor for viewing it on while I'm editing. Can I just buy another monitor and be able to hook it up, or do I need an editing deck, or any other hardware? Right now It's just me and my iMac. Please give any info you know!

    Thanks

    How about a spec for your iMac but macs have been able to run another monitor for eons.
    My choice was a Philips 20" - built in speakers - currently same monitor is in use on my 24 iMac;

    Awesome, so I can pretty much just buy a 20" display and hook it up without worrying about anything else expensive? What kind of cable is needed to connect the two?

    You will need an adaptor if using that model of Philips, but you need to sort monitor first then go for adaptor such as this Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)
