That one is old, but it begs the question, what kind of system are we talking about putting it in?

A Matrox Millennium was a well regarded video card back in the MS-DOS era when I had one (although mine was an 8MB G200 from a few years after that one). However the card you specify would have little value as a GPU even for 1990's graphics, having the minimum spec 2MB of slower WRAM. In 1995 when it was released it would have given a nice image on a good quality monitor for a classy office/business 486 system without costing too much.

having had a recent bout with the gpu war myself, i would like to chime in. the reviews i have read indicates that memory bandwidth (40+ is the sweetest range) and frames/per/second is the debateable topic. the nvidia gt series looks like the best bang.
