Any recommendation on a video card that works well with 1280x1024 at 24bit
color?  I am also running Accelerated-X.  Plattform Intel P-II with Asus
motherboard.

Thanks,
Joseph

If you wasnt just excellent 2D, Matrox G400 is great. For still limited 3D
support TNT2/ULTRA cards are very fast in 2D and slow in 3D.  3dfx Voodoo 3
cards are just as fast in 2D as TNT2 ULTRA cards, and are fast in 3D even
though they lack texture support.

I currently have an Asus 3DP3000 (old card, but very nice) AGP card.  I
can crank it to 1600x1200 at 16bit (now, if my monitor only supported
that).  You probaly won't need a top-of the line card to just do X.
Unless you try finding 3D games, or some 3d widget drawers which support
3d cards, a 3d card is going to be useless.

Thank you all!  Excellent recommendations.

1. Running X in 16bit or 24bit colour depth - startx -bpp 16 doesn't work...

I have a really nice photo of some dolphins that I want to use as my
root background, only it seems that X is defaulting to 8 bit colour
depth.
Is there something in XF86Config relating to "default colour depth",
because I haven't been able to find it. I have tried listing the 16
bit section first, but I still only get 8 bit depth when I start up X.
startx -bpp 16 doesn't make any difference either...
The image is speckled and doesn't look too good - how do I set X up
for 16 bpp or higher colour depth ??

Thanks,
Diane
