It's also useful for getting all of your other video-out (svideo, composite, 2nd head, etc.) features working. Beware though. NVidia refuses to release documentation for their cards and forces you to run binary blobs to get all of the card's features to work. Also, they don't offer said blobs for all platforms, so you may get burned. I've had the misfortune of wasting my money on one of their cards only to find that their binary driver is only available for x86. Until NVidia decides to provide proper documentation for their cards, I'd avoid them and go with an ATI product. -Damian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
