hello

i have htpc w\

adeon 7500.

it works fine.

but i need to get video card with dual head.

so i can use it for pj and tv separately.

right now i have vga out going key digital transcoder then loop through vga port to belkin 4---1.

i also have dvd using component\\\\vga cable to belkin.

then vga out from belkin to pj.

TV feed off component from transcoder .

the picture quality on TV is very very good.

but on pj i feel its not what it should to be. it looks good but i feel it could be better.

that feeling came from that i`m running the vga that feed pj through transponder port then to belkin switch. finally to pj.

too many steps and cables before signal get to pj.

so i need help on buying dual head video card. so i could get straight signal to pj off video card.

i read a few threads about matrox g450 . is it good to do what i want to do.

need your help thank you

I guess all 7500 are not dual head? I thought they were. Mine is. One VGA head goes to the TV, the other to the PJ.

That's why I bought the retail box Radeon 7500 made by ATI. It includes VGA/ S-Video out/ DVI (DVI to VGA connector included), and the price difference between the retail box and OEM is very small.


Watch out for those Powered by ATI clones for the Radeon cards.
