Anyone use HIS Video cards
HIS X1550 PCI has 256mb onboard mem, is Vista certified, compared to my
GeForce 5200 (?) which only has 128mb and is my Windows Experience weaklink,
so thinking of upgrading.

Thoughts? Concerns? And Vista WILL let me unplug old, plug in new video card
without going thru re-validation experiences, right?

Re: Anyone use HIS Video cards
I swapped a pair of 7900GTXs for an 8800GTX with no need to reactivate.

Also HIS make good cards. Especially good cooling solutions on them.
