Is a creative labs banshee good at accelerating opengl. A simple large cube with a texture map runs pretty dang slow. 5 frames per second slow and i have a AMD K2-450 and a banshee video card. The cubes 100x100. Its back face is culled. If it is my card whats the best card for opengl under 200 bucks? Also i put my stuff on my web site. What are the top 5 cards i should recommend the downloaders to have? Thanks Frank ECKILLER

For right now a 3DFX Voodoo 3000 is a decent OpenGL compatible card for under 200 dollars; one of its drawbacks though is it only has 16Mb of video memory. I personally like to run it at 1280x1024 with a colordepth of 16bpp; I find the framerate still tolerable at this mode and depth.

It''s possible (and very likely) that your OpenGL drivers are not the newest. After some painfully slow OpenGL experiences with my Banshee I figured out that I was still running in software mode (at least windowed)...anyway, GLSetup seemed to fix my problem, I can now animate objects with hundreds of polys very smoothly in a window, on a P2-200. Hope this helps.
