Yes you can do this, it is quite common. But it doesn't require an Intensity Extreme.
All iMacs include a port for an external display. You just need to buy an adapter from HDMI to Mini DisplayPort (or Mini-DVI if your iMac is older) and plug the plasma into that. In System Preferences, you can choose whether to mirror or extend your display.

Thanks Elliott,
Mini DisplayPort is the same as Thunderbolt?
Because I have 2 Thunderbolt, 1 Ethernet, 1 Firewire, 4 usb
1 Thunderbolt is free

Thanks again
