I had a GeForce 2 Titanium with a PIII Xeon at 550MHz getting about 15 fps
over SF Video card crapped out (even has a red LED come on to tell you
it has crapped out) so I bought a Geforce FX 5200 Frame rate dropped to 4
in same circumstances. Occasionally up to 6. I already had plans to upgrade
so I didn't panic New system is P4 at 3.0 GHz with 1MB cache AGP runs
at 8x So now my frame rate is back to 15, though it does jump into the
high 20's sometimes. Same copy of the executable in all cases. (CVS from
mid Feb) This is rather disappointing, to be honest.
