Because I'm a brat I have a 768 meg Nvidia 88oo card, which was rather spendy when I had this computer built last year, but worth it (they are teh cheapness now - half the cost). I don't like old tech as my first line, obviously. Anyway, when I was last at the puter builderers I asked them if they had tried the 9-series cards, and they said, "No," then a hush fell as we thought about 9-series cards in a prayerful way.
Reading up about them today it's obvious they aren't good enough yet, but they will be incredible once a few things are sorted. What I think I REALLY need (as a back-of-beyond dweller) is better internet access - well, that's my current focus. I'm not sure that's possible right now in this place, but I think I'll do a wee bit of investigatering and see what happens at different times/configurations.
