    Going to get a new Video Card[HELP PLEASE]

    Okay so I am getting a new video card tommorrow but the one I want isn't at Fry's and my mom wants to go buy it at a store rather than online. So I was wondering if there is a good video card to support desktop effects.

    Here are my specs:

    Search the forums for the cards the store has. Please remeber bumping is not supposed to be more than once per 24hr. Otherwise you could earn an infringement for breaking the rules.

    Re: Going to get a new Video Card[HELP PLEASE]

    @23ornot: that site is severely lacking in number of hardware devices.
    @TheNerd: glad to help

    Re: Going to get a new Video Card[HELP PLEASE]

    Looks ok ...... on the Nvidia site ..... here is the driver link ......

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d...32_190.42.html

    its sometimes a good idea to type into Google Problems Linux and the name of the Graphics card you are after
    just as a rough guide to see what other users have had problems with in the past ..... every system is different
    though ...... so always look for the ones similar to your own .........

    hope this helps too .....
