    Opinions on GeForce 9600 GT


    Hi,

    I'm going to renew my linux-box, and I want to use two displays... as a programmer, I always want more screen space . I reviewed some graphics cards and I'm thinking on a GeForce 9600 GT (my current graphic card is nvidia too, and I really like the performance and easy of installation).

    Somebody has this card installed? In that case, what's your opinion? What about the use of two displays?

    I don't care about use this card in windows or other OS, just linux.

    Or maybe other recommendation (in that range of price) of a dual display capable graphic card.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hrm, I don't personally have the card...but I do know it's pricey, and if you ask me I don't think you will need that much power, those cards are made for high end games or 3D designing and stuff that require a lot of power.

    Linux doesn't need all that, even if you run 2 monitors a bit less powerful card is more than enough. I think what matters more is perhaps a good processor.

    I think for dual displays, Radeon HD3450 should be enough. Unless you want to game and run software like Maya, HD3450 should do the job of handling two displays and playing all HD Videos effortlessly.

    I have that card and it works perfectly under Linux. I don't ever run two displays at once so can't answer on that. I gave $100 for it (after rebate) at NewEgg.
