Main difference between Radeon and VE from my point is video bandwidth -
a full radeon has 128-bit DDR access but VE has only 64-bit DDR access
(Refer for detail to www.anadtech.com). Today ATI is only company which
produses such cards (in <200$ price range). But I hope that 183MHz of video
memory will be enough for movie (At least ATI 3D charger with 4mb played
me movies in real time (btw not under winnt)).

I don't know what reason for me from DVI but I've purchase this card for

Matrox G400 is bit faster of its successor G450 ;)
It is reason - why I did not purchase it. I don't know about G550
but Matrox places its card as far from gamer - as possible.
At least radeon VE is much faster of G550 from game point
