: I know that many people are wondering which video card to buy to use with X.
: I had that dilemma myself. I ended up with Number Nine FX Motion 531. It
: is fast, it has S3 chipset which is supported by just about anything
: (even OS/2 2.1, which is known for it "selective" hardware support) and
: it is affordable.. I bought mine for $99 in a retail store. It has 1 mb
: video ram (DRAM). If you want VRAM, you can get Motion 771 with 2mb VRAM,
: but that will cost $299.
I also have a Motion 531 that I am happy with. Except I can't get it to work
in 1280x1024x8 mode. I bought the extra megabyte of memory from "Chip
Merchant" for ~$30, and the card should be able to give me that mode at up to
72Hz refresh. Unfortunately, I end up with a very very jittery screen.
Does anyone else have this working?
