I'm looking at getting a Matrox 3-head video card for a 3-monitor setup that I'm building. However, I havent been paying attention to much computer hardware recently, and I'm a little foggy on current AGP standards and such.
I'm looking at the ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe Socket 478 Intel 875P ATX Intel Motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131464
) and the Matrox Parhelia 128MB Video Card (http://matrox.com/mga/products/parhelia/128mb.cfm
The Matrox site says "Supported only on motherboards with a 1.5v or 0.8v AGP slot. AGP 1x and 2x not supported on motherboards with a 3.3v AGP slot."
Would this motherboard support this card?
Now looking at the specific video card specs, I have another question
That says the card supports RGB on the left and right displays, and DVI on the center. I'm not very informed on monitors(i use an older CRT; it gets the job done); would the RGB/DVI have any affect on what type of moniter I would be able to use? I'm looking at this moniter: http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/Ca...sp?Category=19
(3 of them of course). In my mind, RGB = the older, typically blue, moniter connectors, and DVI is the newer, bigger, typically white monitor connectors. Is this right? And if the monitor only has a DVI connector, would it be possible to use one of the adapters they make for the connectors?
Thanks so much to everyone for reading
