The problems STARTED when I UPGRADED to PM 6.5, - which has now become
PM 6.51. And the cheapest upgrade price in Denmark is US$ 300 + VAT!

A suitable new 4MB video card will cost me approx. US$ 90-200 (prices
starts at US$ 25) + VAT. As you can see, Denmark is expensive with
software, but quite cheap with hardware. Due to our special Danish
letters, I (like most Danes) don't dare to use US version software.
Instead we use the UK versions which normally don't give us problems.
