I am fed up with my ATI card and tired of tinkering with it to try to get it to work with any Linux distro. The good news is that this means I am looking around for a new video card.
My plan is to go Nvidia for better Linux drivers/support.
I'm currently running an ATI Radeon 300, which is sufficient for my needs when I run Windows or whatever. I do not do much gaming, but I do like the display to look nice and I do photo-editing and the occasional 2D CAD work on this particular machine. I am thinking of getting the GeForce 8800 GT in the future, but for now I'd like to stay in a lower price range. The card will need to work with PCIe, but I'm willing to make case mods if necessary for a larger card. I would like it to have DVI output.
Right now I have my eye on this PNY card on newegg - ttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133172
Any ideas? Thanks for the help...I'm finding video cards in Linux to be a bit tricky.
