VGA cards and UNIX/XENIX

	I am thinking about buying a super VGA card and NEC MultiSynch 2A for
	use with one of our machines running Xenix. Having shopped around a
	little I now know that VGA cards come in two varieties: 8 bit and 16 bit.
	What I'd like to know is if there is much advantage in buying a 16 bit
	card ? I know that the 16 bit card will be faster, but is it significant ?
	The dealers here are a real problem - most spell Xenix with a Z !

					Cheers and thanks in advance
