Default New graphic card

Hello,

I've got a somewhat old Nvidia gfxcard but I'm starting to noticing some lag when playing games now and think it's time to upgrade the gfxcard.

I run latest xubuntu and wine wow.

Anyone got any suggestion on which card would be good? (wrking properly in linux etc).

Appreciate the help :]

Knowing what you have for a system first would get you alot more replies. Right now, you might as well be asking what is the tire size on a red car.

It still would be nice to know what card you have at present, size of monitor, and at what resolution you presently run. Anyhow, with the current pricing of the GTX 275 cards I see no reason for going for anything less.
