This is not so much a problem as it is a question. The onboard graphics device which came with this computer is a Trident Video Accelerator Blade 3D/MVP4. I have installed a video card, NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX/MX 400. The NVIDIA doesn't really seem to be doing anything spectacular. Actually, I don't see any difference. The NVIDIA also makes some noise (has a fan) and probably uses up energy and resources better used elsewhere. Are there any big benefits to using the NVIDIA (reasons why later on, I'll be glad I have it), or is the Trident basically just as good? Any input would be very appreciated. Thanks, Mark

NVIDIA probably has better support. If that helps?
