Thumbs up Re: Asus M3N78 Pro with igp geforce 8300 woes on 64 bit ubuntu

I have an ASUS motherboard with AMD X2 cpu and Geforce 6130 on which I was running Fedora 9 x86_64.
The board died yesterday, so I need to replace it asap since that is my work computer. Ideally, since I
have Fedora 9 on the drive, I would like to replace it with another motherboard on which that distro will
work as is. Hence my question, since you say that Fedora 10 works OK for you. As far as you know, will the Geforce 8300 on the Asus M3N78-EM motherboard work Ok if I connect it to that hard drive? By "OK" I mean that I just need to have 2d video and network working immediately, so I can continue working and fix any extra function or upgrade to Fedora 10 later, after I've released the current projects.

THanks for any feedback,

It should work fine in my opinion, just make sure you install the latest stable NVIDIA linux driver.
