    the radeon9800xt is a good consumer graphics card, the Matrox G550 thou has less RAM is an excellent proffesional graphics card for 2D-dosnt have the fps speed for 3D, I brought the g550 and had no problems with it till i purchaced vice city and needed to get a "gamers" card, so i got the radeon. as a suggestion, and if you have the cash, go for the Matrox Parhelia


    the image quality on the matrox cards is unsupassable--i belive

    if you are incline to play 3D type games then get the radeon. ask yourself whats more important Premire or Quake?
