Thanks for your post, but I am not sure what you are trying to tell me.
I wrote down the (more or less) complete configuration to give people a
chance to comment on it - should they see a need. The main question was
about the graphics part. If you do not use or require high performance
3D, that is fine. I intend to use it - mainly for gaming unter Windows.
And if I have an expensive graphics board in my computer I want it to be
at least of some use and fun under FreeBSD.

Regards,
Chris
