I just picked up a leadtek geforce4 440 today from www.newegg.com for
about 30 bucks. It uses standard nvidia drivers and has overscan ability..
should work out ok.
As for the nvidia card you have now, you should be able to use the same
nvidia package to run a new card of an nvidia chipset, the only thing that
might change is the XFREE86 file.
