The one in my prototype was a PNY Geforce 4 Ti 4600.  In my new machine 
it's the Geforce4 MX that's built into the 7NIF2 motherboard from 
Chaintech. The new machine seems to have some issues with tearing when 
using overscan and the fullscreen mode used by MythGame doesn't work 
(The graphics wrap around the sides) though I can use xmame from the 
command line fullscreen without issue so it's solvable.
