Last week I finally bought my new system ( with the help of this great place), with the P650.
If you have an Asus mb, as I have (P4P800, P4 2,4c, Win.XP), you can get problems after installation of the p650 with getting into your bios: an incompatabilty between the Asus bioslogo-setting and the P650.
I could not open the bios any longer and this is a problem with at least Asus mb's.
It did cost me days to figure it out and finally to get to the patches at the Matrox site.
First look for the newest drivers for your mb and te card itself at the Matrox support forum.
Still , at this moment, the drivers of the card are not recognized in XP (settings), (red cirkel) but it works great now.
I do have an Asus motherboard -- but I have the Asus boot screen turned off -- does this get me off the hook? I also am running Win2K SP3...
Neil, the card comes with 2 DVI->VGA adapters.
That's awesome -- they list it as an "OEM" but I guess that doesn't mean just the card alone.
