I recently swapped my GeForce2 GTS out for a GeForce4 Ti 4600 by doing nothing more than physically taking the gf2 out and putting the gf4 in. Everything works just fine but I am sure there has got to be a number of techniques for taking advantage of the gf4's capabilities which would makle the switch seem much more worthwhile.. For example, FSAA - where do you enable/change this option? Unfortunately there isn't anything like 'RivaTuner' for linux (...yet) so all the tweaking has to be done 'behind-the-scenes'. Has anyone tried the framebuffer option built into the kernel? Does this feature any tweakling options? Well hopefully someone can make sense out of the disjointed, runon jarble that just came out of mouth (keyboard?) and throw out some ideas ;p. Thanks -

generally there's nothing you need to do because the nvidia driver recognises the card and automatically applies the settings for it.

there are a few things you can change in your xf86config file, and you can get nvclock which lets you overclock it if you want.

other than that you should be set to go

Any success or horror stories about NVclock?
I am going to emerge it, but if people have had bad experiences with it, I will probably not use it.
Anyone had luck with GeForce 3 ti200?
