from what i've heard s3 chipsets (which i believe is what the savage is)
aren't quite what you'd call well supported in xfree86.
that said, if anybody wants to scream FUD, go right ahead. i have an s3
card, but it's driving a little 14" so that isn't a real test.
i'm getting a diamond v550 tnt 16mb pci card next week; nvidia have a fairly
good reputation for their attitude to linux/xfree86 of late. i've chosen
this card over the savage for this reason, because i reckon crappily written
drivers or dodgy support negates the benefit of that 32mb video memory.
is anybody else totally pissed off with how all the cool new cards are agp
