Default Re: Should I just give up using on-board nvidia with Linux

So, I have a PCIe-X16 or regular PCI slots on my MB which can take a graphics card. Can anybody here suggest card that can do HDMI that will provide decent performance on basic desktop/firefox/flash video tasks? I don't game.

-bin

[Is it just the 8200/8300 nvidia that can't cope now or is it all nvidia cards?]

At least in relative terms, the 8200/8300 appear to be a magnitude behind the other options, even from nVidia (based on the results I've heard from others with much "lesser" nVidia GPUs while they were helping me isolate the issues I saw). Unfortunately on the low end, at least from looking at places like newegg, it seems there are more ATI cards with HDMI vs. nVidia (I prefer HDMI b/c I have no other digital audio output).

Never did get the onboard Nvidia 8200 to work well - simple things like flash video were barely watchable and I would loose video signal at random times for a couple of seconds making it really unusable. That was using the 177, and 180.22/25 driver versions.

On Demz suggestion I forked out for a 9500GT card (AUS EN9500GT Magic, HDMI) and now everything is working great.
