Pro Tools and video projection

I'm wanting to find out how Pro Tools HD3 users are getting their video to a large screen, in my case a video projector. With all available PCIe slots used for PT there isn't space for a video card. Trying to find the best way to do this.

Magma expansion chassis, my HD3 cards live in there, I have a blackmagic card and a fibre card in addition to the card that connects to the expansion card in my mac pro.

Ditto what Max said, plus a DVI out from a second video output to the DVI in on our Projector.

second mac with Satellite LT and an Avid Mojo to video DA to projector and two LCD screens.
I will be dumping the Mojo and going out the DVI on the Mac to an HDMI DA to all three monitors soon.

Mojo DX

I am just pissed that Mojo DX still does not work with P.T. except with satellite. Very disappointed with Avid on this.

One option not mentioned here is the Matrox TripleHead2Go. It splits one DVI of your video card to 2 or 3 screens, leaving the other video card output free to feed full 1080 to your projector. The only downside we've found is that all the dialog boxes open up centered in the screen spanning our 2 monitors and we are always dragging them to one screen or the other.
