Can someone recommend an inexpensive graphics card that will support OpenGL 3d textures? Thanks. Mike http://www.coolgroups.com/forum

Looks like you need support for OpenGL 1.2. So if you are an ATI fanboy get a 9600XT, if you are a Nvidia fanboy get a 6600GT or Fx5700Ultra. I would get the 6600GT due to it supports GLSL like the others I listed but you will also have access to PS3.0 features and the card costs around $140... HTH

What do you mean by a 3d card? Both my home computer and the computers at the library support OpenGL and can run 3d games but neither supports 3d textures.

Everything from nvidia since the Geforce 1 supports 3D textures (with varying maximal resolution and performance). From ATI, Radeon 7000 upwards.

I'm at the library now. This is what it says about the chip:

Intel (R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller

Those are on-board graphics chips. Generally very poor performance and feature poor when compared to even the cheapest video card on the shelf at your local Circuit City, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc.
