Which nVidia card to replace Radeon 9700Pro
Well...I figured that an nVidia forum would be the best place to ask this so here goes. I currently have a Radeon 9700 Pro. Prior to that I owned a Kyro, GeForce2 MX, and a GeForce4 Ti 4400 (or 4600...can't remember which). Well, needless to say I'm not happy with the fact that there aren't any 64-bit linux drivers (even 2d) for my Radeon and it doesn't seem like there will be any time soon. So I'll be looking to replace it in the near future, like in the next 2 weeks. I was wondering what is a roughly comparable nVidia card these days to the 9700Pro. The 5900 looks about like what I'm looking for and which in some benchmarks seems a little slower, the performance difference is such that I won't notice. Am I correct in assuming that this is about as close as I'll get without spending HUGE ammounts of money on a 5950?

I went from a Radeon 9700 Pro to a FX5900 Ultra and I seen a rather large difference but in Linux nvidia cards are the best.
