Matrox video card any good?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm buying a second hand computer from plymouth university and it comes with a Martox Parhelia 128mb graphics card.

http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/ca...elia/128mb.php

any good?

Has support for three monitors, but do I need that?

No, Matrox makes crap video cards. They stopped making them after the Radeon 9700 pro.

Not true at all. Matrox makes excellent video cards, but only for professional CAD and Video work. You will not be able to game on a Matrox.
