    OH, I have a question, if you hook up a tv to the other line (one of the products on the link you gave me mentioned that, I THINK?) would you beable to use it like a computer screen, or would it just play movies?

    You can use a TV, I have, but the resolution sucks and it distorts on most settings

    The refresh rate on tvs suck compaired to the computer but the card can adjust the resolution and refresh so the use of a tv is acceptable. I've played Soldiers of Fortune on my 32" tv before /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    The Matrox cards are not really intended for games but for video editing and graphics. The card I have is dual head but it has several features. One is the adapter to go to the tv (S-video), second if your a video editor you can hook up a tv/monitor esp for video playback along with the dual monitors, and then there is the actual dual head monitors, I have can different refresh rates and resolutions for each monitor. So my tool bar monitor is set at 1024x768 and my work monitor is at 1280x960 (unless I'm working on larger images then I drop it to 1600x1200, I've yet to try these higher resolution on this new 19" LCD yet /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif).
    The newer matrox cards are even better, faster and allow three or more monitors (if I pickup another 19" LCD (a matching monitor) I'll get a dual DVI card (instead of the 15pin, std monitor connector) and it has an S-video out seperate in addition to the dual monitors, or with the adapter do three monitors. Its about $380 though /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
