Choosing Video card

Discussion in 'Matrox' started by BW, Aug 13, 2004.

    I am shopping for a video card that can play good video games, watch TV
    (either hook up with a TV or watch it on the monitor) and have the option of
    running 2 monitor at the same time.... and not have to spend too much money
    on it...

    Any suggestions?
    Is this too much to ask for?

    Thanks a million for all your help in advance

    I think you would be better off with an ATI or Nvidia card.

    Don't get me wrong, I think Matrox cards are excellent for 2D (I use a G550
    and P650 myself), but they are not so hot at games.
