I guess you are right, but getting NVDI ET4000 (which I guess you need if you want
to use a ET4000 card) costs both an arm and a leg, so you better stay with the Nova VDI.
I don't think ET4000 cards are any better than Mach64 cards either.

BTW. Does anyone know if there is a version of NVDI for Mach64 as well? I guess tte
Hades uses NVDI and I have seen it using Mach64 cards so there must be, or is there
only Nova VDI for Mach64?.
