Don't know quite how to answer you.  The drivers I installed
can be linked to from 


I noticed that both the G450 drivers and the G200 drivers
pointed to version 5.82.018, dated 26 Feb 02, and that was
what I downloaded.  I guess that makes them the generic ones.
That was what had the effect.  That is for W2000, BTW.  I don't
have any experience of drivers for any other OSes.

Hope that helps

   I haven't looked at the Matrox drivers for a while but we noticed
a loss of performance when we went from older beta drivers to more
recent ones (this was probably almost a year ago).  However we have
a G400 for the AGP dual card.

   Do you recall if the drivers were their "generic" ones or specific
ones for the G200/G450?  I heard some hints that there may be a 
difference there too...  Thanks for putting out the note!
