I noticed the documentation for W2K DH support for the G450 eTV. Is this better than the G400?

Are you sure Greebe? I thought the original Marvel only support DualHead via a monitor and a TV? ANd from the press releases it seems that the eTV is in the same scenario.

From everything I have seen, it's Monitor + TV. Personally, I don't see why they didn't spend the extra $15 to throw a normal dualhead on there. I would have ordered one already http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

True ... apparently the secondary head only supports TV ouptut. I guess I misread the DH capabilites page (http://www.matrox.com/mga/products/marv_g450_etv/marvg450_dh_chart.cfm). They have a line for both Max 2nd output resolution and Max TV 2nd output resolutions of 1600x1200!? The secondary RAMDAC operates at 230 MHz.

Oh pardon me, I neglected to read the "Subject" and only saw what posted in the body. Oops
