    graphics driver question

    I have a basic question about what graphics drivers to use for my gefroce 8600GT. I run 8.04. My question is, there are two drivers that I can find, the nvidia ones in add and remove programs and the proprietary ones, is there any difference? Are they both the same? Does one work better? Thank you to anyone that can help me.

    The proprietary drivers have 3d hardware acceleration and support for AIGLX. However they are propitiatory, and not open source (if this matters to you). To use them go to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers and tick the appropiate box.

    Hope that helps,
