Could anyone recommend a low to midrange graphics card for box running
Ubuntu Feisty. Want to run applications like 3d Desktop, 3d chess,
virtualbox etc. Not really for high end games. Present 32mb matrox card
is really struggling.
I purchased a Chaintech Nvidia GeForce FX5200 AGP card for one of my
machines not long ago. 128MB ram and runs perfectly fine under
Ubuntu/Debian/other Linux. Only $80 at the time. It has an s-video out
so it is currently being used in my media PC with Debian installed. As
such I have been using an older 32MB Asus card in my workstation and
have been looking at getting another of these geforce cards to replace
it. I feel your 32MB graphics card limit pain.
There are probably different models floating around now but it might
give you a pricepoint to work with.
