I'm using the RADEON 9600 dual head also, and I do have video "problems"
occasionally. I don't think it's the card though, more likely protel bugs.
For example, in the design rules window the minimum clearance constraint
value is obscured by the text next to (on top of) it. I've seen this sort of
thing in several other areas as well. None of them are show stoppers, but
they are annoying.

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.

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

Subject: [PEDA] Video Board Recommendations ?

Greetings all,

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

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,
