That's odd -- I've got a parhelia installed in my display machine along
with a quad-head G200, and it's doing just fine.  It just popped in &
seems to be working as advertised (although it took me some time to
figure out where I wanted to put the 3 AGP outputs in our layout).

I don't have a PCI g450 handy, or I'd try it tomorrow.  What type of
hardware are/were you using?  (I'm using a Dell WS530.)
