  1. you should be able to find the ATI 5770 at that price range. perfect for 1600x900 resolution gaming. just get a good 375w+ PSU.
  2. Yep. HD 5770.
  3. Thanks for the above answers. At least a few years ago, ATI didn't have good linux support as compared to Nvidia. I am wondering if that's still the case?
  4. i don't use linux. from what I read, there is still an issue. now if its true or just a label ATI can't shake is another topic. your best bet would be to check the linux forum on Tom's.

  5. as i was told on the linux forum that nvidia cards have far better linux support, I am wondering if anyone can recommend a nvidia card that is about $150

    thanks a lot again :)

    you could look for a GTX 260, you would need a solid 500w PSU

    there is no warranty on that card, BFG is going out of business but you do get the newegg 30days warranty.


    otherwise look for a GTS 250 at around $100-110.
