    Good Graphics Card for Painter?

    Is there a good graphics card for Painter? I've tried it on different computers and there doesn't seem to be any difference. Maybe there's some magical graphic card wich can speed-up brush work?

    Redmond, as far as graphic cards, its not going to make much difference.. with the cards today.. Id say a Geforce 2 is fine.. what will improve speed is your CPU speed, and your memory, also a Newer Wacom tablet if they are running USB 2.0. Possibly aslo running a fast Hard Drive..

    But CPU speed and your RAM will make the biggest difference.

    good luck.

    I upgraded from a p3 555Mhz with 768MB ram to a p4 Hdt something 2,4 Mhz, G(string)Force 4 with 512 MB 400Mhz ram (the mother board is made for that kind of ram) and now I can make it up to brushes at 40px diameter! Whoo-hoo!
