I purchased one of the Walmart PC's last year for $199 (800 Mhz / 128M
ram / 10G disk) and have been extremely happy with it. The only
limitation (for my purposes) is that it does not do OpenGL.

I am looking at "upgrading" to the Walmart SYSMAR550 (1.4 Ghz / 128M
ram / 40 G disk). However, I am curious if anyone has purchased this
system and gotten OpenGL working on it. It is sort of hard to find
the specifics on the video card.

Thanks in advance,
