    Can you post some more details about your setup. Can you tell what exact card you bought and if you did any particular timing settings to get it to display correctly. Also does your lilliput report 800x480?

    Is their any chance you know somebody with a lilliput and you could test it out? You gave the most complete review and i will get that exact card but i am curious if it will display correctly on the lilliput.

    @RedMage

    what driver or applet did you use to set these settings? Did you use MSI drivers, or Nvidia drivers? Was this applet you used supplied by MSI or can every owner of a MX4000 card do the same thing you did?
    Could you maybe post some pics of this applet?

    thanx!!

    hehe, I'm not using powerstrip. That's why I was so intent on using Nvidia because they provide such functionality. The Nvidia applet is provided with all relatively recent Nvidia GPU's or IGP's. Go to Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Choose the GeForce or whatever Tab. You may, however, have to update your drivers. Only the newer versions of the Nvidia drivers add support for custom resolutions.

    From the same dialog as above there should be a "Nvidia on the Internet" button, click and continue to download the current drivers. After there there should be a "Custom Resolution" section in the applet.

    I have a M6K and a Xenarc. Instead of fighting the system and adding a video card, I just set the resolution to 640x480 @ 60Hz. It looks great. The scaler inside the display does all the work.
    Some benefits:
    1) Performance: lower source resolution means the internal video frame buffer is smaller which translates to fewer pixels for the CPU to draw.
    2) Font sizes: You don't have to select "extra large fonts" for things to be readable.

    I needed the newest drivers. I found them and installed them. I copied your settings (weird way of entering them though, I had to type in the numbers backwards?!?) and it works!! Nice clear screen!

    Sorry antimatter, I only have a Xenarc, so again no step further for you
