If they did I would've bought a couple myself, instead I bought a cheap Forsa 7900GTX until there's support for the higher cards. There was a thread on one of the lists from zander(NVIDIA) about some needed functionality to improve PCIe, add SLI, and lots of other crap I have no understanding of. As for X.org, it also looks like it doesn't support your card :-( only supports upto the *7800* -Alastair _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
