Sure! I’m always happy to help!

…and that’s pretty much it!
One thing to ponder while saving for this card, is that Matrox really wants you to build your system around it. I’m not saying scrap everything you have and start fresh. I didn’t have to do that. It’s just that you might have to make some changes. For example, the user’s guide says to “put your system drive and your a/v drive on seperate IDE channels”. It doesn’t make sense, but if you don’t do it, you’ll have serious problems.
Also, make sure your motherboard’s chipset is compatible with the Rt.X100. You can see the list here:
and click on “Rt.X Xtreme-Pro tested chipsets”. You can also find other helpful information on this page.
Hope this helps!
