If you can get your hands on older Matrox cards, they're awesome. They
work really well and put out a very nice quality picture. They were used
a lot by IBM back in the day, so they're generally pretty easy to come
by. I found fifty or more up at the computer recycling facility I use
(StRUT) just sitting in a box. Most of them have since been put into
thin clients.
