Yes, but not very much. The only real difference iv seen with a better Video Card is the text is alot clearer and intriquit (sp?) wallpapers will look clearer. Mostly its just clarity.

It also depends upon what kind of monitor you have....some things could look completely different but you'd never know it....CRT monitors are better for 3-D perception but LCD monitors are better for clarity and refresh rates....

To be honest, you can make anything look better with a 256MB video card

make sure you have the latest driver, go to display property (in control panel) and make sure it's set to the highest color quality and the highest resolution you can use or like to use.

There's not much you can do besides that (the obvious).

If you want Windows Xp to "look better", download Talisman

Well....excuse me...



Apart from any minor adjustements made to your video card you can also try WindowBlinds...

There's not much you can do to make your desktop look better, sorry to say. You could try using ThemeXP to change the look of windows with custom themes. Other than that there's not much you can do.
