My frontend box has an Asus A8N-VM CSM w/onboard 6150, which doesn't
work so hot w/my HDTV. For whatever reason, from BIOS to X, it will
only fill up 4:3-ish worth of the set, max rez 1280x1024. Dunno why
that's the case, but I had a PCIe slot and a PCIe 6200TC, which works
perfectly at 1920x1080p. (All DVI here).
