Another option would be to install one of the video cards that does dual
display with ADC & DVI ports and no VGA.  Then you'd need a DVI->ADC
adapter, which is $89.99 here:


Unfortunately, both of the video cards that I know of that have dual
digital outputs would require modifying your Cube to make the card fit. 
Those are the Radeon 9000 and the GeForce4MX.  The latter is available at
OWC for $75.99, but I don't think anyone has installed one in a Cube thus
far.  I am considering it myself, because I'm also interested in running
dual LCDs.
