I can send you my config in private mail. I am running a G550
connected via DVI to a 46cm LCD. The second head is currently
configured for a 640x480 output.

The card is great apart from the fact, that TV-Out doesn't work
under X11 (only Wincrap) and the Matrox losers don't do anything
about it. The G400-DH runs fine w.r.t. TV-out (got it at home)
but the G450 and G550 won't. That's why I'll never by a Matrox
