ATI Radeon x1300 Pro

That’s right, I got a new video card! I decided to go with the ATI Radeon x1300 Pro AGP card. This thing has 256MBs of DDR2 VRAM (Video Card RAM, much faster than regular RAM), Pixel Shader 3.0, TV Out, HDTV or SDTV Out, and both DVI and VGA ports. It supports DirectX 9 and OpenGL 2.0. This thing far exceeds Vista’s requirements, so I now get the full Aero experience. So now I get things like transparency in Vista. Also, Flip3D (which is like Alt-Tab, just in 3D). Plus, all the windows now fade-in and fade-out when windows are opened, closed, maximized and minimized, respectively. Which is cool. I also updated my post on Vista with some new/updated screenshots of Vista. Plus, I fixed it so that when you click on the thumbnails, you go to the image instead of a page, since that wasn’t working properly.
