Note that for many of the Sun fixed frequency cards, you may have difficulty getting it to sync. Also, you probably won't be able to see the BIOS screens and the like...

I heard that not seeing the bios depends on the quality of card you use.

It really has to do with the capability of the monitor. I hasten to add, I tried this a few years back when I had a nice big Sun color monitor and wanted to use it, but could never get it to work satisfactorily. With 19" flat screen monitors going for $59 after rebate this week, it seems pointless to struggle with old Sun monitors. :)

I enjoy a small challenge when it comes to computers I learn better that way. But it is time to start saving up for the vid card I guess. The way I see it is fixed frequency vs. composite is just a matter of preferance. Other wise fixed frequency would no longer be made.
