I've just installed a Creative 16mb Banshee video card on my computer.
In doing so I removed the 4mb virge card I had on my machine originally.
Should I have left the virge card there?

Dave,

  No, the banshee is a multipurpose card.  That is, it supports regular 2d (for windows) and 3d (for games).  The banshee is suppose to be a revolutionary product for Creative.  That is, it is one of the first cards to combine 3dfx technology and regular 2d technology.

I just wanted to say that you made a good choice throwing away the virge, they are one of the worst video accelerators.(acually, most people call them video deccelerators)
