Do the matrox g550 drivers work for the pci-e version of the card?
The web is giving me conflicting reports about the g550 and pcie, I would like a real answer before I waste my money.
Basically I need a vid card with open drivers because the ati and nvidia binaries do not play well with the low latency audio stuff, and so far the g550 seems the best choice, and I would like to get a pcie mobo because I want to dual boot and do 3d stuff on the other os with a different pcie video card, and possibly use that card on linux with a second kernel once nvidia supports it(they seem to wait a few months before their binaries support the new cards). It looks like my video choices for linux are the raedon 9200, onboard intel video, or the matrox g550. I am having a hard time finding a mobo with onboard intel video that looks queit, but choosing a mobo right now is kinda amoot point since I will be waiting to see how the release of the conroe processor will affect the prices.
So I was either going to do a mobo with the intel onboard, or a mobo with the g550 and an nvidia card plugged into the pcie slots. I cant find raedons that aren't agp so that option is out.
