Since AccelX sits on top of it, there isn't any problem with this.
I've found AccelX to be much easier configure. It's usually
just looking up your card's name in a database of 400+ cards.
However, it's a one copy per machine and no source situation. I know if
I had a high-performance card and there was a better product for supporting
it and it was fairly cheap then I do it. It's a good $100 for a
$300 card. :)
BTW, again I still don't work for Xinside and these are *my* opinions.
