I'm giving upgrading my Packard Bell Force 106cdt
I considered upgrading my RAM to 48 megs, but figured
that upgrading to 32 megs instead would save me
enough money to buy a new video card and mouse. The
video card I have in mind is the Diamond Stealth 64
with 4 megs of VRAM. Will 32 megs be enough with a
fairly low-traffic Web server and Xfree86, so that
swapspace is not needed?
Does the Diamond Stealth 64 w 4 megs of vram
20", so even 1024x768 (16 bpp) on the builtin CLGD5434
card is sluggish and large looking. I tried running
Xfree at 8 bpp at 1280x1024, and the display was nice
but the lack of colors made netscape and mosaic's image
quality poor. Is it possible to disable the builtin
video board on the PackardBell so that the Stealth
card may be used?
I might buy a Logitech mouse, too. How are those
in terms of quality?
Thanks in advance!
