Hi,
Could anyone advise whether the G550JK (i7 variant) can run two external 1920 x 1080 monitors through a DVI - mini-display port adapter?
Asus said maybe... probably not... we're not sure.
The adapter itself costs a fair bit so want to hear whether it's possible first.

Thanks for any advice.

Actually, I also need to know what the best way to do it is. I was originally looking at a Belkin Mini Display Port to Dual DVI adapter, but someone told me that would only mirror, not extend on the two monitors. They said the better way would be to use a mDP to dvi for one monitor and a HDMI to DVI for the other. I'm getting a bit lost... Would that work?
