cheap video for linux: nv GT210 vs. ATI 4350 - 2.6.31 ubuntu 9.10
I have issues with my integrated nv8300 (M5N78Pro mobo), so i think I will buy a new card.
I no not require anything special on performance front: my box is a windows audio workstation and linux desktop box. I do not play games. Video HD playback support 'd be nice, but what I'd prize the most is stability. It must be silent and low - power consumming. And, of course, cheap.
I identified gt210 and HD4350 as potential targets. I use 9.10 with stock 2.6.31 kernel.
From what I understood the current nvidia binaries are better, though ATi is better on opensource drivers and better open drivers are expected soon.
Which card should I choose? Any other suggestions?
