Hello,

I will buy new graphics card, but actually I don't know, which will have full support for Linux Ubuntu (in the future, too). I was watching Gigabyte GeForce GT 220 - Is it have full support with drivers and other for Linux Ubuntu?

My motherboard is ASUS P5QL PRO and I have Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor.

Please help me with choosing graphics card for Linux Ubuntu.

Thanks!! :)

nVidia, if you want to do lots of multimedia something with full feature C set.

you may want to look at this: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog

certified hardware should work out of the box.

...forget that list:

..eg there is ATI X1300 listed,which will only run with the free ATI driver.If you want great 3D/VDPAU,just grab a Nvidia card and you will be fine.
