Re: The "best" S3 Virge cards to buy?

8MB on a graphics card in 1996 wasn't totally unheard of, but not necessarily useful unless your card had a beefy RAMDAC and you had an expensive large CRT display to go with it. 4MB cards could do 1280x1024 in 16.7 million colours (packed pixel mode), which was beyond what most monitors back then …
