:lol:

It's decided ... I'll use a wonderfull XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition :kiss:

It's the G92 version not the G80!

Lovely card. Perfect for a XP build.

What do you think?

Edit:
Just read this in the FAQ section on the official web page of the 777Dual VSTA:

The NVIDIA® 8800GT PCIE VGA card is GEN2 mode VGA card. Unfortunately VIA® chipset does not support GEN2 mode VGA card. The only solution is to set 8800GT PCIE VGA card to GEN1 mode.
We have tested 8800GT PCIE VGA card. After flashing GEN1 mode BIOS for 8800GT, it works fine on VIA® chipset motherboard.


Is this true with the 3.19a bios?
Will I have this problem with the 8800GTS 512MB?

It's outdated information. Early 8800 GT cards have issues in vBIOS with proper switching between 2.0 and 1.1 mode on PCI-e (they required patching, and patched vBIOS were released).
Since Your card is much later model (ie. full 128SPs active), it shouldn't have this issue.

Stupid question, If I buy/find a PCI-express graphic card like ATI x800 or x600, is such card compatible with Windows 98 on 775dual-VSTA? I mean, is Windows 98 compatible with PCI express?
My first PC had Windows 98 os.
