OK, I don't think we've done this in a while so lets look at this question again:
Does Matrox (Parhelia, P650, P750) still have the best 2D Image Quality bar none? More importantly has ATI reached the point where it's caught up to Matrox's IQ?
Not part of the poll but as an aside have ATI's Windows driver's matured to the point where they are as solid as Matrox's? I know the answer to that question 1-2 years ago was <b>NO</b>.
I'm considering upgrading my old G550 to either a Matrox P650 or an ATI 9600 Pro. Dell has the ATI right now for 162 bucks. The P650 is STILL 169. BTW, I don't game. I mostly do Photoshop, Web-browsing, email & text suff. 3D isn't really part of my equation here.
I'm gonna cross post this Poll over in the A/V Forum on Ars just for comparison sake.
