i had terrible problems with a generic geforce2 card using the supplied
drivers with rats nest lines not disapearing when moving and the 3d display
taking 3 mins to update on a simple board. However, after downloading the
nvidia test drivers it works flawlessly.  not as good as my old elsa card
though.........

Hhahaahhaahhah, may be for games, but not the real, full, authentic OpenGL.
Not even close.  That goes for ATI & Matrox as well.
