Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Folks,
I went ahead and purchased a 6600 PCI-Express based card
and now I have accelerated video running under Linux. If I
ONLY had known about this incompatibility prior to buying
my 7300GS card, I would have never purchased it....

So.........
USERS BEWARE!!!! IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON RUNNING LINUX WITH A MOTHERBOARD THAT HAS THE ATI RS480/482 CHIPSET AND USING AN NVIDIA BASED VIDEO CARD, THEN YOU BETTER THINK TWICE!!!!!!

The only Nvidia based card that seems to work with RS480 chipset is the 6600 based cards. Hopefully someone will read this and save themselves some time and frustration.

Regards,
TL
