PC mag had a review in mid nov that put the Matrox g400 max on top for most DTP. Add video and go with the all in wonder pro from ATI. You can find the review on line. It is well done and helpful in decision making. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Hays, Dennis Sent: Tuesday, December 21, 1999 9:11 AM To: 'Brierley, Sean'; 'firstname.lastname@example.org' Subject: RE: Video card recommendations? 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.
