[AG-TECH] discussion on best video card for use with VIC

Recently we had a Grid meeting and due to the fact that there were too
many windows on the console screen, the video card could not handle it
(it was a NVIDIA FireGL card).
Assuming the problem is bandwidth on the AGP bus (please correct me if I
am wrong), has anybody used some of the new AGP 8x cards like the
wildcat 4 from 3dlabs?
Administratively of course the correct solution is to request sites to
limit the number of cameras used when joining an event. The problem was
that during this meeting we had many ad-hoc sites.
