    It depends on the input of the monitors. DVI or VGA.
    You can get a third-party DVI to HDMI adapter, but Apple doesn't have one.
    So then you could use DVI cables, VGA cables or HDMI cables.
    Now, if you have a Mac Pro you are in luck, because you can install a second video card... if you have a MacBOOK Pro, you are screwed, as you can only drive ONE external monitor.
    If you are considering a USB video adapter, don't as moving images are terrible over USB.
