We are about to purchase a PPro 200 system through Gateway. The salesman
I spoke to said this system comes standard with a "all-new, improved, etc"
video card based on ViRGE/GX, but did not tell me which one. I am almost
sure it is the new STB Nitro 3D. However, I am apprehensive about
getting a video card that hasn't received public approval yet.
The main requirement is a good all-round 3D/2D card that is sufficient
to run 3DStudio MAX at reasonable speeds. We can not afford any fancy
Can anyone offer opinions/advise regarding this card? How would it compare
to say, the Matrox Millenium, in 3D and 2D?? Also, is this card Heidi-
This is for a PPro 200 with 64 megs and 17" CrystalScan.
Quick responses will be appreciated, either on the newsgroup or by mail.
