hey, i should of asked in the first post but it just crossed my mind, i picked up an old PII board (w/CPU) off of ebay, ti says the CPU is rated at 300MHz i plan to bump this to a 500-600MHz PII/PIII, as far as i can tell Fedora will run on this but i need to know what kind of video card i can use that is compatible and it doesn't have to be top notch either just something

Any video card will work, just shy away from ATi, as their drivers suck. I recommend nVidia, Intel or Sis.
