1. QUESTION: Windows Accelerator Cards & DOS Video
I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking (but it looks like
it...). I am considering buying a new video card for my computer (a
386sx-16). I do mostly windows stuff but still considerable DOS and some
of the DOS work is somewhat graphics-intensive - mostly plots of
mathematical functions using various plotting programs,
My question: I have heard that cards such as the Diamond Speedstar 24X
and ATI Graphics Ultra et.al. enhance Windows graphics performance
considerably at the cost of DOS speed. What I want to know is, will these
cards be any faster in DOS than my Cardinal VGA 100+ ?? I ask because I
know the difference between "fast" and "slow" and "abysimal" is often very
subjective, and I want to know if anyone has any quantitative comparisons,
If the info is helpful, I have a CTX 14-something monitor (640x480 analog,
I think), so I am more interested in the colors than hi-res until I can
afford a better monitor. I also cannot spend more that $200 or so.
Any info, recommendations, etc. would be VERY helpful!!
I don't visit this part of the net very often, and digging through 500+
unread articles to find your help is prohibitive. Thank you!!
Thanks in Advance!
