    i would suggest nvidia as their drivers are more advanced than ATi's, and are a lot easier to install, and setup the card for X.

    I personally bought (a few weeks ago) an Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 for 35GBP, it has VGA out, DVI out, and also TV-out.

    thanks

    I have heard alot of good things about the nvidia drivers for linux. Thats is probably what I am going to do then. Plus the cards are not that expensive.

    Yeh, i think (at the moment anyway) that nvidia cards are the ones to use on linux. My bro has an ATi, and he's thinkin bout changin it to an nvidia, even tho it's a reasonably good ATi, but he says that with a worse nvidia he could get better performance purely cos he can get it to work properly lol
