If you're using Linux, pretty much you're stuck with NVIDIA as they have about the best Linux support you'll find. For help on setting your card up, we have a forum dedicated to that which you can access from the main page. Depending on your price range you could get anything from a GeForce4 Ti4200 (if you only can spend $100) to a GeForceFX 5900 Ultra (where money is no object). Do a search in the NVIDIA forum as topics like this have been discussed a multitude of times.

Install RH, telling it you have a generic video card, then install the NVIDIA driver from an RPM. If you have any questions, ask in the Linux forum. They know more about it than we do

Go ATI Radeon and get OpenSource drivers.

Screw nVidia and their closed source, kernel tainting sloppy code. It's fine while it works, but the minute you start feeling any form of loyalty towards the 3D card runners up you'll find yourself buying an nforce2 motherboard and then you'll be really screwed!!!!

Eternally waiting for a response from nvidia,

i dont know about switching motherboards i love mine.
asus 87v8x
no reason to change..
ok so what radeon card is graphic intensive that will at least rival my fx5200
i had radeon7000 and it was junk..
smoke in games would just crap out the card.
but i do love nvivdia(even tho they r closed source)
my games seem to run the best on nvidia.
FOR THOSE WHO HAVENT CHECKED OUT SUSE 8.2 PRO
YOU SHOULD ITS QUITE NICE>>>>

If you are an architect or industrial designer you need to have the very best 3d card not in your computer, but in your brains.

I think it's same with gaming...other people may feel more stronger 3d experince while gaming and others are feeling more flat screen.

Yes. Use your imagination.
