From a different listing, “This does not have a standard DVI output (it has an ADC connector). To use it with a standard DVI port, an Apple A1006 DVI to ADC adapter needs to be purchased.”

So, you’ll need an adapter. Either an ADC to USB, which may not be available. Or an ADC to DVI plugged in to a DVI to USB. 

Neat!

Does your macbook really not have any video outputs? USB graphics cards result in lots of input latency and extra cpu usage, and it sounds like recent versions of OSX don't support them well either.

On the adapter side you might be able to go from DVI to ADC for that monitor. Apple once sold an adapter for this. Avoid going through VGA if possible.
