Leadtek WinFast GeForce2 MX
The Leadtek GeForce2 MX comes equipped with 32 MBs of 6ns SDR memory and S-Video output (Chrontel 7007 encoder). Aside from the board itself, the package comes with: S-Video cable, Leadtek driver, Leadtek SoftDVD player and documentation on par with the Asus offering. The package will retail for $149.
Since this board was equipped with S-Video output, I was only able to test TwinView through my TV as the secondary output. Unfortunately that meant that TwinView would be nearly useless to me being that text is extremely hard to read from a television unless you use huge fonts, which is fine for things like a PowerPoint presentation. To top this off, there was annoying pink borders around some of my windows and the edges of the screen were a bit wavy. After testing all the cards, the Leadtek had the worst quality S-Video output. I was shocked to say the least since Leadtek typically offers high-grade equipment. The video-out was the same when using TwinView and manually changing to single S-Video output.
