Re: NVDIA or ATI (over Linux)
I've had not problems with any Nvidia card I've used. The list includes; TNT2, Geforce 2MX, 5200, 5700LE, and now 7600GS (had AGP before, now got PCIx)
Only ever tried using ATI cards back in the day of the Rage128.
Once I started using Nvidia, I found everything worked as much as I needed.
I'll hold off on the 8 & 9 series cards for a while - it strikes me that too much effort has been spent on designing hardware to handle all the DRM stuff that Vista requires, and getting the drivers working properly.
