That sounds like pretty good news Daniel.  Is all this in the current 
6.8.1 release?  Now if I could just figure out why I can't get more 
than 190fps out of an X-tacy branded r200 (9200 SE 128 megs) board.  
But most of my posts have apparently fallen thru a crack someplace.  
I saw one post a couple of weeks back claiming nearly 2000fps on a 
slightly slower box than this 2800 Xp athlon.   We need a 
menu/checklist of all the stuff to check when things get mired in 
time.  Or is there one someplace I've not been pointed at yet?

Cheers, Gene
