Hello I have a Sapphire HD4850 X2 1G GDDR3 PCI-E graphis card, and presently I riun a Windows 7 OS, but am moving to Ubuntu GUI Desktop, and was wandering where I could get Linux drivers for this card (and they are NOT available from the Sapphire site), or how I could get Windows drivers to work with this card, I do have 4 monitors using this card so I need the drivers and ability to use 4 monitors.

Any suggestions welcome

You can't get Windows drivers to work in Linux, so don't bother trying.

The best source of ATI Linux drivers is the AMD/ATI Website:

If you are using ubuntu, d/ling the drivers from ATI isnt needed in almost all cases.

Just go to- System-> Administration-> Hardware Drivers and ubuntu canl fetch and install the drivers for you ;)
