    nvidia 5700 - good drivers? good card?


    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...537&CatId=1103

    I have one hundred dollars exactly, and I've been in the market for a graphics card. That looks to be the best card I've found within my budget, but I have three questions.

    Will 8x agp cards run on a 4x agp slot? I've heard that they do but not from reliable sources.

    How well does the driver for that card work with Linux/X?

    Do you see anything wrong with that card peformance wise?

    Thanks.

    Nvidia gives great Linux support, so I don't see any reason why this card would not be a good choice.

    Before I purchased it though, I'd send Nvidia support an emial and make sure this card is gonna work for you.

    I don't have that particular card myself, but do have an Nvidia card. I have had no problems what so ever with linux drivers. They go on easily, and work fine. I dunno what they're support is like if u do come across trouble as i have never had any trouble with it!!

    Thanks.

    of course they will, just tell your mobo to run at 4x instead of 8x cheers
