I guess that I should really take some time to experiment with OpenBSD. If not for anything else, it seems that the system is so well documented that I found a site pointed by their FAQ with an on-line engine that generated a Modeline for whooping 1024x768 @85Hz with the Trident card. I had never really pushed my monitor that far. On the low side, it seems the Trident card is made by some RIAA people and just generates some noise when I'm playing some MP3s. Looking forward to see if X4 can help me with acceleration.
