Question regarding graphic board compaq W8000
on Feb 13, 2008 at 2:03:32 pm

I have a question regarding my Compaq W8000 still running smoothly my 844/x with xblur since the beginning of time it seems. I am looking to upgrade m graphics board since i want to use two larger displays than the 2 17" monitors which i use now. Currently I use the original Matrox millenium G550, which is capable of running two displays in 32bit colordepth to a maximum of 1280x1024 pixels. I would like to run two displays in 32bit color at 1920x1200. Which single graphics board would be capable of that in the Compaq W8000 (with al the 844stuff in it)? Of course i'm interested in those boards which are being used by other 844x users and not just the boards which 'should' work in this machine. Real world experience is vital here.

Would be grateful for any reactions

Regards
John

I've been using the 3 display Matrox Parhelia for years with 3 19inch lcd's. It's awesome.

The only problem I've ever wondered about is sometimes I'll lock up when adjusting keyframes on the graph...I'm not sure if that's a normal 844 bug or caused by the triple displays.

Either way, all that space is worth it.
