not a single reply yet im dissapointed

Hardly anyone bought one. Those who did are mostly non-gamers and might not be interested in a TI4800.

Parhelia's are also very very expensive too. Not the sort of thing the people who do have one will want to give away.

Yeah a 128mb Parhelia (OEM) is about the price of a Radeon 9800 (about 350) and for the 256mb version its about 420.

Can i ask why you want one though? Just out of curiosity. I mean you have a gaming card which i assume u bought because your a gamer - so why get a parhelia? They dont perform well for games really and if you have your heart set on a matrox card then why not go for a G550 or something reasonable? The new matrox P-Series is out now/soon btw. Parhelia GPU with a 128bit Memory Bus and its quite reasonably priced (about 170).

the p-series sucks man its what the g550 was to the g400max

Sucks for what??

Games? Well they arent gaming cards - even the full fledged parhelia aint no gaming card really. But if you want a great workstation card then there is nothing wrong with the P-Series or G550.

the milenium 750/650 series is half the card that a parhelia is,
and trust me parhelai is good enuf but not great for gamin:)

Yeah a paralhealia costs waaaaaaaaaaaay more than a gf 4800 waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more.

but i want a p series, they are very good!

I once heard that the Parhelia is what the Mac is to the PC....or BMW to any other car maker...lol

With the exception that BMW is actually a successful company :D

I think boeing or airbus or both should also start making cars... see if they can match bmw's engineering prowess :D
