I went and picked up the MSI GeForce FX5900XT-VTD128 128MB
at lunch today since I'm an impulse buyer. I didn't have much time at lunch to do much of anything, but I did get it installed into the system and setup in windows at least. It seems to be working quite well and from what I can tell is crazy fast. (running unreal tournament 2003 at 1600x1200 didn't seem to be too much of a problem for it). I'll have to set it up in linux this evening and see if I can't get the cedega/winex thing setup and working properly with a few games at least. I was reading a review last night that showed the linux drivers are actually slightly faster than windows for the nvidia cards where as the linux drivers are about 30% slower than the windows drivers for the ati radeon cards.
