Default what geforce for flash 10 (agp)

hi

I'm trying to get the best out of a very out machine here, and decided to buy a new geforce card...
The currently installed ati 9800pro isn't supported anymore by catalyst
Apart from this the system should be adequate for the next 12 month, as only office, a little bit gimp, skype, mp3 and of course youtube/etc are important.
If an AthlonXP 1800 + 2GB DDR isn't capable anymore of those task, I would be pleased to be enlightened before I buy an Nvidia card.

I found this list of flash supported cards:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/gpus_su...dobeflash.html

The only AGP-GEFORCE-FLASH discussion I found here is:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=142244


At the moment the system runs fine with an Geforce 3 Ti 200
Only flash video has poor performance is a problem:

Or maybe I should just switch to windows?


thx a lot

You could try to get a GF6600GT the bad thing with the 6600GT is it's noise. The fan starts at 100% and needs to be manually set to 60% to get to a bearable noise level.

I think there is a 7600GS for the AGP bus too but I haven't looked because the 6600GT is a nice card and I'm quite happy with it (wife's computer: e-mail reading, web browsing and tv watching are the main tasks on this pc ).

A few minutes ago I purchased a 7600GT for 35.
I hope it will do the job... We'll see.

Are you at least using a 3.5" floppy instead of a 5.25" floppy? It is 2010 and all.

Sorry, but since Adobe FlashPlayer for Linux have no GPU acceleration at all then it is not a mather of GFX card for faster flash playing but a faster CPU.
None gfx card will give you faster flash playing under Linux.

All.

9800 isn't supported by the catalyst driver, but it should the support of the open source driver for that card is excelent.
