    Well, I'd like to thank you guys for the advice.

    After putting me off the ati 9800 pro completely I deciding to do dome more looking around. In the end I found a great deal on an Asus Geforce 6600 (128mb) for around the same price as I was thinking of paying for the radeon 9800.

    Anyway, I got the card yesterday and am very pleased with it. In Linux I didn't have to do anything. Linux just booted up as usual with the same nvidia driver I already had installed.

    Performance is not bad but I think the rest of my system is pulling it back a bit, especially the 4x agp slot on my motherboard. In 3d mark 2001 I only get approx. 9500 (I got about 7200 on my old geforce 3 card). Maybe one day when I decide to upgrade my m/b and CPU I'll get a true measure.
