Default Re: Recommendations for a nVidia card for Linux 64bit.

I work in an Intel-only environment, maybe that is why I am confused.

My 6600GT card is from XFX, and while it has no overheating *problem*, it certainly runs hot. I have read comments on this forum that very old drivers made the 6600GT run cooler. It may be dependent on how the device is configured and used?
(a CPU generates a lot more heat when it is running in a loop than when it sits waiting for an interrupt; maybe there is a similar situation in a GPU?)
