    I have no experince from this, but if you just want image quality, Matrox Millennium G450 is great. Matrox is known for good image quality.
    But if you want something fast, go look for something else.

    Du kan köpa ett Matrox Millennium G450 för 1312kr på http://www.datorbutiken.se/

    The G450 has excellent 2D quality ,but its 3D performance suffers,if you've got the money go with a Geforce3 .Matrox also makes a G550 ,but any difference from the G450 is mostly in price or a few proprietary gimics.

    You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)

    Image quality in what? 2D, 3D, both, cheap card, expensive card...? What are the requirements?

    LMFAO!! A GeForce 3 for video quality. You want the best 2D, then get a Matrox G450 or G550. If you want the best 3D performance(notice not quality) get a GeForce 3. If you want Outstanding 2D, and great 3D, get a Radeon.

    I have a G450,but had heard the Geforce3 had similar 2D quality ,but at a much higher $$$.

    Radeon 8500 out late next month.

    Matrox has execellent 2D quality, but don't think about playing any new games with any of their cards.

    The Radeon is usually said to have 3D image quality just slightly less than that of the Matrox cards, and worlds ahead of the GeForce2 and older NVidia cards.

    The Geforce3 is said to have 2D quality nearly equivalent to the Radeon.

    The new Radeon 8500 due out in a couple of weeks will have improved 2D quality, possibly dethroning Matrox (it's about time ).

    The image quality of the Gainward Geforce3 is at Radeon level. All of the other GF3's are far below.
