Hi Folks! I've got a well-used Celeron-based small-form factor (Dell Optiplex GX-60) computer donated from work to run Ubuntu. And a decent 17 inch widescreen LCD that I use with it. Native hardware works, but no graphics effects.
I also have an older GEForce MX-4000, which seems to have about the same graphics capability. NO AGP, NO PCI-EXPRESS. So, what's a good low cost upgrade?
I've read the surveys, and it looks like ATI based cards used to be slow due to to driver problems, but now that is solved, and Nvidia cards need a cranky proprietary driver to work properly.
So, A Survey. Also looking for specific recommendations. If it's on eBay used and cheap, that's even better!
Everybody loves a survey, right?
