Nice!. I would replace the matrox for a cheap GF2 mx avoiding the DOS game issues and better performance with Open GL gameslike Quake 1 and 2.

Hey thanks for that man, I was undecided between a gf2 or something else from nVidia, or if I should keep the Rage for DOS and invest in something that supports Glide.

The thing I really couldn’t stand about the Rage was seemingly unavoidable choppiness with 3D. The Matrox is smooth like buttah. Plus, it works very well with my cheap vga-to-HDMI upscale since it can handle many more output resolutions than the Rage did.
