Well, the box I'm writing this message from is running a
G98 [GeForce 8400 GS] + 3Gb videoram, while not the "latest and greatest", it
isn't really "legacy" either. I was /sure/ it'd be a "snap" to setup, but
while "functional", it isn't the optimal experience I had hoped for.

I guess that's the price one pays for choosing a "closed source" piece of
hardware. :(
