    Please tell what color is better - 256 colors or high color 16 bit?

    A technician told me 256 was the better of the 2 and computer will work faster.

    Please explain difference and which is preference?

    Thanks

    Unless you have a 10 year old PC he/she's wrong. 16 bit is better and won't slow a modern PC down one bit. No joke intended :D

    Thanks so much. I thought the same myself, but thought I'd check.
