Changing vmware video card

Hi everyone
I have Suse 10.1 running with vmware 6.1 with XP loaded.
I am trying to change the display seeting on the windows control panel from SVGA II to an nvidia driver. The card is Nvidia 6200 LE pci express. Does anyone know if it possible to change the Vmware default display driver. I have changed the chipset drivers with no trouble.

No. VMWare is a software that emulate an OS, therefore it can't use your computer's component at its maximum. It should also be limited at DX8.

Think of it as using a piece of software to emulate PS2 games on a PS2 = would be useless, and not performing. (NOT saying using VMWare is useless, just saying your performances in Windows are greatly affected). Or, like trying to emulate a PS2 on your PC.
