    but unless you use this computer to game with, you dont need a nice vid card... unless the sis only supports up to like 640x480 resolution.....

    i fail to see the logic in letting the better card collect dust just because he has a crappier one laying around.

    it may be used for some gaming a little, but it has tv out and supports dual monitors. the sis does not and the dual monitors feature will be used in the future.

    up until reading his post after yours about him going to do dual monitor.... theres really no point at all in wasting a good video card in a server box. But yeah he said he might play some games too.....

    heck after youve gotten ur server box up and running you could install a remote admin program or if using XP use the one that comes with... its great... and take out the video card.... put the tower in a corner somewhere with a power and network line goin to it and do anything to it remotely....

    I use my server for gaming once in a while, quite often actually. Have a Boston Acoustic speaker system on it even!
