Trying to find a good reason for another way to overkill dos/windows 3.11/NT 3.51 build and got to think about if it would be possible to get it running in really high resolutions. I haven't played around with it in much more then 800x600 and some in 1024x768 and want to explore the possibilities of maxing out a good 20" or 24" lcd display.
From what I know I need at least 4mb vram to run 1920x1200 in 256 colors and a 8mb card should be enough for 24bit color. And thats if the drivers can support that resolution... 1600x1200 should be easier and requires less vram.
I have a few cards lying around here but from what I can find Matrox is best in terms of drivers for older versions of Windows. They have drivers even for the G400-series that should work with wfw 3.11. My only problem is that the G400-cards I have is AGP-cards and I would prefer PCI for this build...
S3 Virge with 4mb could possibly work. But I think that the cards I have has a really crappy ramdac and would not be to fun to use.
S3 Savage pro (?) 32mb pci, no drivers found
Nvidia riva TNT 16mb, pci, no drivers found.
Matrox Mystique 220, drivers ok, only 4mb card 🙁
Are there any other common and pretty good PCI-cards that could be used for this project that I'm currently not aware of?
