Hi all,

I need a budget graphic card with 2G memory and found;

Inno3D GT520 2GB Graphics Card spec

I don't game.

Has any folk on the forum tried this card before? Is there any driver problem for Linux? Pls advise. TIA

To me that seems like a pretty good deal. 2 GB Video RAM is a 'budget' card? :confused: :P. I don't have experience with the GT520 but just installed a 1 GB. RAM Nvidia GT210 card (http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1734303&CatId=3669) in a machine that had been using an ATI internal adapter. Plug and play, no surprises or issues. $29.99 so $50 for a better GPU and 1 GB. more RAM seems pretty good.

Here's a review of a GT520 on Ubuntu 11.04: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=nvidia_geforce_gt520&num=1
