That card was once the mightiest around, drooled over by gamers the world over and now it has been tossed aside, like an errant Autumn leaf. So E-bay it! Is this new card AGP or PCI-E? If you want an Nvidia AGP it's going to be a downgrade from the X850!: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/radeon-geforce-graphics,r... uncfan_2563 a b U Graphics card May 28, 2009 10:10:52 PM Yeah and also nVidia provides official linux drivers so thats a plus for them in the linux field. i dont think ATi does but i'm not sure Can't find your answer ?

Simple rule if AGP auto ATI go for a 3000 ionno if they make 4000 with agp but nvidia gave that market up awhile ago. If PCIe then it's more of what's your flavor. At ~ 70 9600 from nvidia or 4670 from ATI Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWhat kind of laptop for Ubuntu/ Linux should I buy ?
