If you really want to persist, look into the swiftshader software. Be warned though, if you use a virtual hosting company swiftshader will allow the server to work, but it will take up a lot of resources, compared to other hosts on the same machine. They shut one of my servers down because of that.

Anyway, wouldn't it be better to move this part of the discussion to the support thread? I might be wrong, but I think that most of us are subscribed to this topic because it was about announcements and 2.0 in general.

Thank, XenServer allows for an ATI or Nvidia graphics card to be passed through to a virtual machine. It's a 1 for 1 match. So if you get like a blade server with a blade full of gpu's you can pass the gpu through to many VM's as you have GPU's. In my case I have a gpu installed but it's not passing through. I feel it might have something to do with the age of the motherboard. I really need to buy a server class board now. Now that School is in full switch and I am committing to an engine and programming and getting more people involved. I should invest into a serious box.

Yes, XenServer (and many versions of Xen) allow 1 to 1 GPU passthrough. A good, albeit limiting, feature of XenServer. Sounds like you know your virtualization stuff well. Do you work with Citrix much?

I've used http://iweb.com/ for win dedicated server, but it's pretty expensive, >=85$ per month
