Matrox 550 or FX5200?

    I'm upgrading my pc and I want to get rid of my video card. It's a radeon 9500 which works ok for dual monitors, but I don't really like its fan.

    I was looking at the Matrox 550 but I saw that Scott and Guy use FX5200 for their machines (standard). FX5200 cards are about half the $$ of a Matrox, so I wonder if these will do as well?

    I will also be doing some video editing, but nothing too serious. No gaming allowed!

    New specs are going to be:
    AMD 64 3500+ (with a Zalman 7700Cu cooler)
    Asus A8V deluxe
    2x 1Gig Corsair RAM
    video: ????
    2x 17" LCD
    Tascam FW1082

    Thanks for your help!
