Bingo!
we are the only folks here with that old a card..erhaps, nobody uses an AGP now.
Worse, my slot limits it to 4x ..but this 256 GPU has never disappointed me in the games I wanted to play.

My lappy runs the Intel GMA 950 graphics core on the 945 chipset. My custom built PC has the GeForce 8800GT. I'm not a gamer (I leave that for the Wii!) but it sure helps with image visualisations.

I bought a GeForce 8800GT 512MB card about a month ago and it failed, but it was good while it lasted. I took it back and exchanged it for a much cheaper Ati low-end card, since I don't play games anymore.

The only real graphics intense stuff I do is FEM.

I take it you've got a load a RAM with that too.

I have an FE-model running at the moment sapping 13.7GB of memory. FE is great, but you need a beast of a machine to get solutions to even moderately large models.
