So I can't run one LCD and one CRT on this beast - is that correct?

Do you know how the 200 NVS differs from the 550XGL card (both are 
Quadro4-based).  There is no good (detailed) info on these cards 
capabilities - in particular the options for driving mix-and-match LCD+CRT, 
CRT+CRT, LCD+LCD is not well defined.  I think the 550XGL is clear enough 
that it can either do CRT+CRT or LCD+LCD, no mixing.

Your $145 will probably cost about $200 to $300 here (not including 
exchange rates) as they are considered specials no volume or discount 
houses are doing them in this country.

BTW the Mitsubishi 2040u is EOL'ed.  The new one is 2060u.  Any 
comments?  This will cost me about $1900AUD - or about $1060USD on current 
exchange rates.  How does that compare to street pricing in nth America?

For comparison an 17" LCD from Mitsubishi (DV170) is $1700AUD or about 
$950USD.  How does that compare?  And this is an analog drive LCD not even DVI!

Thanks for the advice,
Ian
