My experiences were the exactly the same as ...

DonPedro, Based upon both your recommendation and the Sudhian benchmarks, I'm about ready to try a Radeon 9100-based model. I can purchase the VisionTek, which includes 64 MB DDR, from one vendor for around $60 including shipping. I just have one final question. Not much was said about the GeForce4 ...
