Hi,

Yes, the two cards are compatible.  The millenium does have 3D features itself which you might want to consider before laying out for the 3D board - take a look at:

http://www.matrox.com/mgaweb/techsupp/game_faq.htm

for an explanation. Details of the extra features of the Diamond board can be found at:

Basically, the millenium does: Flat shading, Gouraud Shading, Rendering and  Z-Buffering.  It doesn't do texture mapping.

Hope this helps
