Parheila and Aero
 
I am running a old AGP G450 on a P4 3.4 media box because I
appreciate the simplicity and reliability of DVD Max. However, I
recently upgraded my video editor to a new version, which requires
that I run a Vista Aero supported video card. I am hoping that I can
stay with my current AGP slot board.

Does the PH-A8X256 support Vista Aero?
Does it support HD?
Does it support DVD Max?

If not, and I decide to upgrade the motherboard to a PCIe board, does
the Parhelia APVe 128meg support Aero, HD and DVD MAX?

thanks

The Parhelia doesn't support DX9, so no Aero, and you can forget about HD
acceleration too I'm afraid. I used to be the most ardent Matroxian but
unfortunately their graphics cards are completely and utterly outmoded
nowadays. Even their reputation for better VGA picture quality has been
largely usurped, both by ATi and nV improving theirs, and the steady
encroachment of digital interfacing.
