> I just bought an MSI Retail Box MSI nVidia Geforce 8400 GS 256MB DDR
PCI Express x16. It works quite well with OpenSuse and new Nvidia setup
on the home page. Does 3D and everything and it's not in the OpenSuse
list nor in my PCChips motherboard listing.
> It was just $43.99. It's also a DirectX 10.0 Vista capable. Also

works well on my Windows 2000 setup. Add it to the list if you like.
