    Fully supported nvidia card


    As the thread title suggests, i am looking to buy a nvidia PCI-E card, that will be fully supported under linux, with all the XGL features, gaming the works, also the card must have to ports, so i can run dual monitors from one card. Budget is around:

    200

    $375

    297.11 EUR

    Pretty much all nVidia cards are supported. There are only two drivers for each architecture and this is for current cards and one for legacy cards. Presonally I would recommend getting a GeForce 7xxx, with a balanced combination of RAM quantity versus RAM speed. So if you had the choice between a card with 512MB DDR versus 256MB GDDR3 I'd go for the 256MB option. You should be able to find plenty of cards that will suit.

    I don't do much gaming but XGL will run on any half decent card from the last 2-3 years. Try to get a card with pixel shaders for best effect.
