    I would like to hear others comment on my observations.

    I've tested several video boards, admittedly a very limited selection, and I've observed that the best video performance occurs at 800x600 with 64k (16-bit hi-color) colors. 64k colors is noticably faster than 256 colors and there is virtually no performance variation when going from 640x480 to 800x600 but when any combination of 16M colors and/or 1024x768 is used, video performance can drop by a factor of 10 or more.

    I have a limited selection of graphic boards to test and I'm using the Nuts&Bolts video benchmark.

    Can anybody confirm or deny my observations?
