Regarding matrox, heres my experiences with graphics cards
on linux for audio use, posted half year ago:
Theres a typo there though: "Matrox 400+500" is supposed to
be "Matrox 450+550". I'm afraid of those cards. They
made my machines behave strangely, hanging, lots of cpu use.
It might work for you though, but none of mine have been
very pleasant, neither in windows or linux. You can find similar
experiences on the net, you should search a bit.
