My understanding was that Matrox cards were the best for linux and based 
on that I bought a Matrox P750.  The P750 is nearly the same as the 
Parhelia but doesn't include S-Video and only has 64MB ram.  I'm putting 
together a system this week that includes the Matrox and dual opteron 242s 
(single core).  If you want I'll let you know how it goes.  If only the 
motherboard would hurry up and get here!
