Seeing this...

...makes me wish I hadn't sold my GeForce FX 5200. I didn't think I'd need it since I don't do 3D gaming anymore, and now I'm on a Radeon 7000 VE. The Radeon is fine for regular desktop stuff, but I recently tried enabling composite shadows in GNOME and it was too slow to be usable. It looked great though! I guess I'll be saving up for another GeForce FX, maybe a 5500 this time.
