10.4.8 Up & Running, Plz Point in Right Direction

jas 10.4.8 setup and running with little hassle


installed basic OS with AMD extensions only


Without installing anything, I already have LAN/internet working via the Marvell onboard LAN on my mobo & the onboard sound AC97 on mobo.


However, I have done nothing to setup my graphics... and I noticed I am capped at 1024x768 resolution, and the screen saver runs slowly. I have an XFX Nvidia GeForce 7800gt 256mb. Where do I go, and what do I need to do? I am overwhelmed by info and if someone could just point me in the right direction...


Also, is there a thread or guide for updating to 10.4.9? I need 10.4.9 to run Final Cut Studio 2.


FINALLY... is there anything else that I should know or need to setup? Like I said I have done pretty much nothing, its just up and running. Kernel updates? Other drivers/extensions to add for better performance?


Please any help/pointing in right direction would be so helpful.


Thanks so much.



PS My System Specs:



AMD x2 4800+ processor (SSE3, venice, socket 939)

ASUS A8N-SLI Premium nforce4 mobo w/Marvell Yukon LAN & Realtek AC97 Sound

I guess one of the main things I am wondering is... what is the best extension to use for my graphics card? I've heard of titan and macvidia and... yeah...
