Damn you filthy apes!

Today I brought my brand new Ti 4600 graphics card in to the office to see if it would work on my machine there. Hoping that it was a bad card (much cheaper to RMA than to upgrade), I plugged it in and turned it on. It works great-- without a single hiccup. Everquest loads, the DxDiag tests run great, as does everything else. Bugger bugger bugger. This means the VIA chipset difficulties on my home computer are too much to overcome, so I will be forced to upgrade my dual P3/866 combo to something more recent. I think the nForce2 chipset looks promising for AMD, but I haven't really decided between P4 or Athlon XP. From what I've discovered about dualies, the MS services and stuff multiprocess well, as do the high end apps like Bryce and 3DSMax, but none of the games do. So I guess it's not really worth having on a machine that's a combination of development box, game player, and digital audio workstation. Well, time to throw more money in the hole on my desk know as my computer....
