Just picked up a bare bones card for 100 smackers, is this a bargain?

If you get the breakout box and can register it legitimately to get the software upgrades, this must be something of a bargain.

However, be aware the Matrox 2000 and 2500 have a reputation for being absolute pigs to set up and make reasonably reliable. I have a 2000 which I spent months on. (It now sort of works) however I eventually gave in and bought a Canopus Storm. What a difference! Visibly better pictures and little or no messing about, it just works.

Best of luck if you do get the 2500. You should do a search for the user groups cause there is much useful info. (I've lost the urls)

Excellent! At that price you can't go wrong and it's well worth investing a bit of time.

It is fussy about motherboards and especially soundcards etc but check out their forum rather than relying on the ancient compatibility list and you should be OK
