I recently purchased a MacBook Pro and, as is known, it only supports one external monitor with its DisplayPort/Thunderbolt port. I've heard of people building external video card enclosures and using them with laptops before, but how is it done?
I have essentially one Thunderbolt/DisplayPort port on my laptop, which I'd like to connect to an external video card, to connect to two external 1080p monitors. I don't need the best video card in the world, as all it needs to do is push the image to the screens, the internal AMD/ATI 6700M card is powerful enough to take care of all of my needs.
How would I go about doing this? I'm not looking to buy something premade, I'm looking to buy a video card and whatever else I need to set this up myself. Can anyone help me understand how I could accomplish this, hardware-wise?
