Add-on memory for my Matrox Mystique 220

I recently bought a Matrox Mystique 220 with 2Mb of memory.  This card is supposedly expandable to 8 Mb, however, Matrox's web site doesn't show or mention the expansion chip anywhere.  Any ideas on where can I purchase it and the approximate price?  Would it really make any difference on the card's performance?

Relen,

   Yes, it will cost you roughly $80 plus tax and shipping.  Check it out at this URL:

Hi,

    You can go to a local computer store that carries the Matrox card and ask them to order you the memory upgrade.  The price should be around $80-110.  I think you would be better off just buying a newer card with more memory.  I know the Matrox Mystique 220 with 4 MB is selling for roughly 70-80 dollars.

I already tried that one with the computer store where I purchased my Matrox.  They don´t have it and said the easiest way was to order it through internet.  That´s why I posted the question.  I haven´t been able to find it through internet either.  Is this expansion module really that expensive?
