    Oh great, now we're gonna hafta hear about how crappy the MX cards are AGAIN! I'm just about sick of hearing that from everybody. I've got an MX400 64mb and it works fine, so don't go telling him it's his "POS" video card......

    Hadda get that out before it started all over again.....:rolleyes:

    well, they're not horrible... just not a good value (performance:price)

    cobra, any idea what kind of motherboard you have? it's kind of a key piece of hardware. and did you try new video drivers? http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?PAGE=windows2000

    Yup I agree on that.

    Maybe you should try updating your drivers

    Good luck mate!
