But the GeForce 210 PCIe, e.g., is regularly on sale after rebate for $10. I picked one up myself (to replace a 7950 GX2) and it's perfect for a composited desktop.
But okay... say it's $20.
What's cheaper... you buying an updated card for $20 or NVIDIA spending five figures to go through all the rigmarole of updating their drivers?
My mother board has both apg and pci , thats the my point. By sugesting someone get a new card would mean getting a new mother board or a new computer. Sorry I cant do that I live on social sucurity. I also might ad that I have a degree in computer science, I cant see that just a few simple changes woul cost that much. If nvidia does not want to do they could allow xorg to do it.
