Note about using GEFORCE 2 & 3 cards with Protel & Win2K & WinXP.

If you have any problems with your GEFORCE video card and Protel, NVIDIA's latest
generic GF2 & GF3 drivers seem far superior in performance and stability compared to
some of the bundled video drivers which come with your GEFORCE video card.

Note that the generic drivers may have slightly different controls in their display
properties control panel.  It is recommended that you fully uninstall your current
drivers before installing these NVIDIA ones.

>From my experience, these finally outperform Matrox's stability factor.  The only
thing left that Matrox has going for them is their ability to customize their scan
rates to a much further extent, compared to NVIDIA's scan rate options.

most important.  dont wish to spend big bucks on a 'proper' cad card though, maybe
upto  150 or just over $200
