    Is this all compatible with Linux??? Do I need to use wine or cedaga??? ....
    (I am a noob in linux) And another question: I am learning ubuntu now, but how do i need to install drivers for my radeon 7000 (normally your drivers will install automatically, right?) but my desktop is not fluent but slow and playing games like quake III arena goes also really slow

    Bought a few of these for work the other week and they work great with Linux - even come installed with Linux. All for £130.

    Not sure about playing games with it though - you will probably need to update the graphics card.

    Unfortunately if you want to play games then at the moment you're best off using Windows. If you want to use Linux too then you can go for a dual boot. I've tried a few games with Wine and Cedega but gave up and went for a dual boot myself.

    OK, thanks for the reply.
    I think I will need to have multi booting...
    What do you think it's best: Windows 98, ME, XP or vista for playing games only?
