Which monitors (connections and sizes)?
With no information all I can do is show possibilities:

2011 MBP's only have thunderbolt so you can only connect to other thunderbolt devices such as thunderbolt displays. So you can daisy chain them within the restrictions in that first article I linked to:
You could still connect a HDMI display with that usb adapter:

Is the mini display port call thunderbolt display? because I have mini display port in my MBP ( a vertical parallel line on each side of a small rectangle). I think the Matrox DualHead2Go will work fine but a little expensive device. Is there another way to do this connectiones with the same performance of the matrox?
thank you one more time

For a thunderbolt computer you can use either display. In this application thnderbolt and mini-displayport are interchangeable. In other applications they are not.
Aside from chaining TB displays or chaining a TB display to a mini-displayport display as per the limitations mentioned in that apple article I referenced above I don't think you have many other options other than the Matrox or somehow using the USB port and a hdmi adapter.
Just for the sake of completeness, if you had another mac computer with a larger screen there is a utility called ScreenRecycler but that I think is off topic here which is why I haven't mentioned it.

I used a few 3d software (arch software) and I already have one monitor connected to my MBP by the mini displayport which runs perfectly.Let's say if I connect the second monitor throught the USB 2.0 to HDMI Audio Video 1080P Adapter for Macbook . Will it have the same performance than the Matrox DualHead2Go? If so, what is the difference between each other? (USB to HDMI to Monitor and Matrox DualHead2Go)
Sorry to bother you but I just wantto make sure what I do need to buy for a good renderings performance.
thank one more time

No, a USB-connected monitor will be significantly less responsive than one connected to your mini-Displayport.
The disadvantage of the Matrox box, I believe, is that your two monitors must be identical. Check that with Matrox to be sure I'm correct about it.

I doubt it but I posted I doubted it in some thread where I was originally made aware you could even get video through a usb port. The responder said they had no performance problems. Of course he didn't say what that meant.

You could try one of these:
Mini DisplayPort | Thunderbolt to DVI (2 DVI Output) Converter
