I run G450 quad cards in my desktops and would like to stay within Matrox and hopefully within the same chipset so that I can use the same 32/64-bit drivers on both the low profile dual and the G450 Quads. Do you guys/gals know of or can you reccomend a decent Matrox low profile card with dual DVI out (or one LFH-60 to dual DVI)?

Must be low profile and must be DVI. Thx.

I really wouldn't use Matrox anymore. ATi FirePro and Nvidia Quadro cards are far superior.

laux, No, they aren't! Both ATi and nV have crap multi-monitor support in comparison.

If you're not gaming and you're doing primarily 2D they are fine cards, and I use one here at work in my laptop.

Main thing winston, is what is the available slot you are using? PCIe or PCI?

PCIe 1X;

for PCIe 16X you cuold even move to dual DP, which would be a nice solution.

But if you want to stay with a G series based solution there are PCI G550 ones, which is what I have in the laptop;

Those are GOOD cards for 2D work and is great for those who WORK with multy display setups which is a necessity in stock trading to office work. The G550 looks to just right for older low profile systems that do not have pci-e slots. Plus dumping another helps :)  if there is room. XP can do mixed card setups as well Win 7.
