I am getting a Matrox G400+ for my system (also NT). However, in checking with Matrox, the dual monitor aspects of the video card only allows an extension of the monitor---imagine your screen displayed over two monitors and moving your cursor seamlessly between the two. If set up properly, I could place the catalogs and designers on the right side leaving the left monitor for the working area. I have used the Matrox Productiva 8MB card under both NT (service pack 3 and 5) and also under Win98 with no problems.

Ananda: I like the Matrox G400+. I like Matrox cards for DTP in general, Matrox's 2D continues to be excellent and it's 3D and gaming pretty solid. I used to use Number 9 cards, too, but that company hasn't had a competitive release in a long time. Other cards, such as the Voodoo 3 do good 2D and wonderful 3D gaming, plus are easier, I think, to overclock. For FrameMaker and Adobe in general, I'd avoid STB and ATI, based on poor performance and/or driver issues . . . but maybe I am alone in that.
