With Protel, any of the Matrox cards will be fine, especially in Win2K & WinXP.
However, do not expect to get any good performance out of the Matrox cards with any
3D acceleration needs.  ie gamming & some OpenGL apps.

    If you do not want the dual-head output on 1 card, I recommend a GEForce-2 or
GEForce-3 based video card with at least 32MB of video memory.  I personally like the
ASUS V7700 pure series.  Under 100$ with 32MB on board & it's performance runs
circles around the Matrox series.

Subject: [PEDA] Preferred video card


| Group,
|
| This subject may have come up on the forum before, but I just need a
| reminder.
|
| I am getting to replace my video card *finally*. I know Matrox is a solid
| card. Are their any other preferred models, considering, dual head is not a
| requirement. Any reports on the latest stuff (G550 or 450) are of interest.
|
| I would also like to know (be reminded) if there is a FAQ/bug list/list of
| work arounds/list of suggested improvements for Protel, outside of Altium ?
