Matrox video card help

I have this matrox millinium and I wanted to get some tweaking software from matrox's website, but they ask for the model, and I dont know it. The card was already in my computer when I got it. There are a bunch of numbers on it, I will list some here that might help identify it.

There is a chip on top that has:

MATROX MGA POWER GRAPHICS on it,
IS-STORM R2
9609EU032

There is also a texas instrument chip on it.

Also printed on the card is a number 590-03 REV: A

On the underside, are some stickers.

The first one says:

J107E9200NP 06H9066 603
IBM FRU 06H9074

The next one is an FCC sticker.

The third says:

MGA-MIL/4/IB2 302
MFG P/N: 79075010152 MIE3480
S/N: CAE90254

There also is a small round sticker that says M 604

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

This should be pretty simple as this is an IBM computer (based on the IBM P/N you mentioned. Simply go to IBM's website, go to the support section for your model (computer), and find out what's in it. Right clicking on the desktop, then go to Properties, then settings should give you the model also (it will say something like Dell E770 on ATI Rage Fury).

too poor for dell...

I don't think IBM can help me with this. My computer is what I call a frankenstien.

Matrox Millinium Video card,
Hercules ET6000 128 Video Card (duel monitors)
2 Maxtor harddrives, 2.76 GB, 1.28 GB,
Caviar 415 MB Harddrive

48 MB RAM
Pentium 200MHZ MMX
Intel Motherboard (It has the big keyboard socket, not the small one)

Aopen 32X CD drive (unkown vintage)
Network card
SB16

Windows 98 SE

I know, I need to fast forward to the future, but this thing plays need for speed III: Hot Persuit, so I am happy. I did most of the work on it myself, the Matrox was in it when I got it. I added two hard drives, CD drive, and the second video card.

Oh, I looked on the back of the Matrox card, and it has a second plug-in next to the monitor plug. It says "A/V" and has a couple more pins than the monitor plug. Will this help in the identification?

I think I got it

If you go to http://www.matrox.com/mga/support/dr...fy_product.cfm you'll see that a card with a MIL chipset is a Matrox Millennium card.
If I remember correctly, if you download the Matrox unified driver it will tell you the exact card you have during the install process.
