I've had no problems with either once I specified the video memory size to work
around a problem that causes a hang every 10 times or so (work computer doesn't
have an AGP port and has an 8 meg PCI card, home has an AGP port and has the 4
meg AGP card). You do need 3.3.2 of XFree86 to support the AGP (and fix bugs
in the PCI version). You might want to cruise the Matrox section of the
XFree86 web pages, there are 2-3 work arounds you need to know about.

I believe the Mystique doesn't have the bandwidth to do 1600x1200 (at least at
high bits per pixel).
