Default Is GeForce6200 AGP8x FULL linux-compatible?

Hi all,
I want to buy the card GeForce 6200 AGP8x, but I want to be 100% sure that it has full linux compatibility. Take into account also the motherboard, an asus A7N8x deluxe (it has an nForce2 chipset.. so it should help..)

VERY IMPORTANT: In the shops around me I find this card of the "Point of view" firm..
is it only a distributor, and the linux drivers I get from nVidia site are ok with it, OR it is a completely different product?

Thanks,
Matteo

The card should work fine on linux, there's no difference between all use the same driver.

..and my doubt about the "Point of view" firm? Is this only a distributor? Or do I risk that nVidia drivers doesn't fit?

I bought an Hercules card with ATI chipset thinking that I could use ATI drivers but it was not the case.. I don't want to do the same error..

It is just the producer of the card. These days you could see them as a 'distributor' as about all vendors produce the same boards (only differing in the color of the PCB, the fan and clockspeeds).
