I bought this graphic-card particularly for usage with office- AND 2d_3d-design-applications. It works fine with all office-applications, The dual-monitor-support is extremely usefull >> one step closer to the real paper-less office. It works fine with 2d-applications. It is completely useless with Alias-Wavefront-products, such as Studiotools and Maya. It slows down ANY movement on the screen to ULTRA-slow-motion. It is impossible to work with it productively at all. Whos fault is this? Alias Wavefront's or Matrox's? Neither of them offers a 'work-around' for this capital problem. It should not happen at all! I wasted £85 on it, because of this. It is very usefull, as I wrote before, for office and 2d-applications, but too expensive, for that purpose >> other 32MB-dual-monitor-graphic-cards are cheaper and faster. Resume: I would give it 3 stars, if it worked problem-free with all applications - but under these circumstances, one can not rate it anything else than worst (1 star).
