    Graphics Card Advice

    I am looking for a new graphics card, preferably Nvidia, of low-middle price ($30-$60) that would be more powerful than the integrated card that came with my Ubuntu Dell desktop setup last year. Incredible power is unnecessary, but I would like a card that will work instantly with Linux or that would require minimal setup. If anyone has had any good experiences with a certain card and can suggest one, I would appreciate any advice.

    Also, if you are rebuilding a system (which you should if you install a new graphics card... I think, everything will work fine). The 8500GT is a good card. Most of those cards shown are a good bang for the buck, and it doesn't require much setup other than installing it. Now if it is on windows, that is another story)

    I don't know about the 8500GT, I have it but it isn't working properly with neither the open source drivers(only get 800x600 resolution), nor the proprietary one which just doesn't boot at all.

    I have the 8500GT as well (from MSI). The problems that people are having with it in Ubuntu 8.04 also occur with Fedora 8 -- I switched back to Fedora just to see if the issues persisted.
