How high can my reslution go?

Can my resolution go up very high if i'm using (forcing) the Standard SVGA card? I'm running it at 800x600 24bit with no problems, can it go any higher that that?

I used to use the ATI 3D Rage Pro driver with WinLinux 2000 (with a resolution of 1024x768@16bits), but the screen was all fuzzy and weird. But in Windows, my resoluton works up to 1152x864 with 16-bits (with no problems) and 1152x864 with 8-bit (with no problems). But it won't go in WinLinux 2000. Why???

The svga driver is probably not the best driver for your card.  It will only support certain resolutions depending upon how well your card reacts when peing pushed by this driver.  It is best to use the driver specifically designed for your card.  If one does not yet exist, then be patient and persistent.  It will soon enough.

Ok, I guess, but, is there an even better driver that will work really good with a MACH64GT?

I believe I have heard use of one of the nvidia drivers or something, but not too sure.  Look in the previously asked questions.
