Well, after a week of fighting with the new video card, I can load windows without trouble, even run the DirectX diags, but when I load EQ or anything else with serious graphics, it freaks out. After much researching on groups.google.com, I've found that VIA has always had problems with the GeForce chipsets. Additionally, my motherboard (MSI 694D) also has trouble with AGP 4x stuff... What this equates to is probably a new motherboard/CPU/memory. Such a joy, nothing like spending money after spending money. Oh well, perhaps I'll get on the Pentium 4 bandwagon finally.
