Hi,

Can you confirm for me that if I want to go with Darwin rather than an external motion controller I need an external graphics card ?
At the moment I am using the on board graphics on my motherboard.
Forgive my ignorance but why does it make a difference. Does the amount of system memory and main processor have no impact?

When I started building my cnc It seemed simple as I had a Chinese kit with a basic bob and I was only thinking about Mach3.
I can see that Mach4 is better in some ways but the choices about printer port and an older operating system or a external motion controller are giving me a headache.
One moment I seemed on the verge of buying software and seeing if this creation would actually do something useful with a router now I seem a way off again.

Any insightful thoughts would be appreciated.

Steve
