    [SOLVED] Re: Graphic Card suggestions?

  5. [ubuntu] Re: VDPAU running on x4 bandwidth - will playback be ok?

    Thanks for the suggestion. If I was solely looking at a HTPC, then ION would be good, but I need to use a PC for day-to-day stuff too and the Atom cpu just doesn't cut it for me.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Ideally, I would like to get a pci-e slot running at the full x16 bandwidth. Actually I do have a few motherboard choices, the one with the x4 bandwidth is just the cheapest...

  13. Poll: Re: How long before Ubuntu becomes the biggest OS in the world? Will it happen?

    Really cannot see Ubuntu or other Linux distros take over Windows. But it can gain more market share if vendors install it on pre-built computers. At the moment, it's only available on a few select...

    The above posts are mainly for themes, which is all good.

    [ubuntu] Re: What's the best video card for me?

    Nvidia gpus are better supported under Linux. You should go for GeForce 8 series or higher as it supports hardware video acceleration via VDPAU supported apps (that includes XBMC).
