I just recieved a 64 bit mpeg svga video accelerator from a friend which supports microsoft direct x. In the market for a video card, I looked at the 3d banchee and realize it was cool, but 130more than this freebie. I have an hp 6330 with k6-2 3dnow and a standard built in 2mb, upgraded to 4mb of video ram. I am not sure what kind of chip/ video engines are in my computer currently but the digital research 64 bit accelerator comes with 1mb and is upgradable to two. I want to know if it is worth putting this graphics accelerator in my computer. Will I speed things or see worse performance with the 1 mb accelerator than the standard 4 mb of video memory set up in the computer currently? BTW my primary interest in video accelerators is playing games. I feel I ought to admit that.
