Drivers for various hardware
I recently purchased $700 of computer parts with the intention of running games, Windows, Linux Ubuntu, doing work, watching movies, browsing, and similar tasks. Now, I have successfully built it, downloaded all Windows drivers, and run a few games, but I still have yet to find drivers for the MB, and quite possibly the GPU. My list of parts is:
MB: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 4.0)CPU: AMD FX-8320
RAM: 2x4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
HDD: Hitachi travelstar 5400 RPM 320 GB and Seagate 7200 RPM 80 GB
GPU: Gigabyte GV-R927OC-2GD
PSU: 750 Watt Corsair
CASE: Zalman Z12 plus
Can someone please give me a link for the drivers, as well as detailed instructions? Also, I am a beginner, this is my first build, and hopefully, this will be my first time running Linux.
Thanks, I will greatly appreciate help.
Re: Drivers for various hardware
According to Google, Your Gigabyte card is an AMD Radeon R9 270. That might pose some serious problems.
I recently acquired a Radeon R7 240 -- and, unlike with my previous AMD HD 4290, the open-source drivers are garbage. They won't give me full resolution or multiple desktops and any attempt to install them through the repositories crashes my system.
