First thanks for all answers!

images are displayed at the screen (9 images on one screen - and they
change all the time - I think I'll use pix_buffer because I need a
certain set of images in a certain time) and some text ...

thanks - the problem is only, that I think this card will be a little
bit too expensiv (would need 2 of them ...)

Question regarding the grafic card:
of course ati radeon and nvidia seem to be the best solution - but expensive
