just because it's digital, doesn't mean a projector can't handle it.

The only issue is whether you need a normal screen output, and also a projector output at the same time.   If so, you need a twin port card.

I find nVidia cards much easier to work with these days due to friendlier drivers than either Matrox or ATI.  Which model of 5740 do you have?

Well i must admit i think matrox is a pig to set up especialy dual head 2 go
What i want to do is just switch between screen and projector, i normally use a splitter cable
