It may be a radeon 9200, but it only has 32MB of RAM.  A few years ago 
that would have been decent.  But now they're selling video cards with 
256MB of RAM, which is much more appealing for a video wall.   Another 
real concern is that there is no expansion slot.  So the only way to 
expand onto the box is through usb or firewire, which is somewhat 
limited in what you can do.
