OLD but still the best dual head card Matrox 550

Agree with nVidia, they are working quite well. I used GeForce 440MX
64MB and was more than happy. Then I changed to Radeon 9600 128MB dual
head that was much faster. Both running without any problems.

Cheers,
Igor

Hi Linden,

To date, all of the machines I've used for Protel have run nVidia
based
cards without a problem. 

I've used the following cards, and all ran without hiccups:

nVidia Vanta 16mb (not enough memory for anything other than a small
design)
nVidia GeForce 2 32Mb (still not quite enough memory)
nVidia GeForce 4 MX 64Mb
nVidia GeForce 4 MX 128Mb
nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128Mb (in current machine)

None have had dual outputs, but you can easily set up dual outputs in
WinXP
with a second PCI video card. (See my post "Multiple Displays" a month
or so
ago).

Subject: [PEDA] Video Board Recommendations ?

Greetings all,

I have heard that some brands of video cards can show problems when
running
Protel.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to whose video boards work well
and
those I should steer clear of?

I'm not after the latest and greatest video gamers mega-card just
something
that will reliably display Protel PCBs and Schematics preferably
upgradable
to a dual monitor setup (either a board with 2 outputs or the ability
to
operate with 2 seperate boards)


Best Regards,
