You would be fine with a 6600gt a great budget card everything just works even wine/cedega applications. If you want to go fast without the 8series headaches get a 7950gt, the 7950gt is my current favorite Linux GPU, I can do everything with it and wine/cedega apps at near native speeds. I have 2 of them SLi'd on my desktop. I'm using an 8400m GS on this laptop and have had nothing but problems with it, It works fine for Compiz/Beryl, but Wine/Cedega with World of Warcraft I have yet to figure it out.

Can you suggest a NVidia-Graphics-Card, that meets my wishes?
