  • Need some input on Graphic Card for Linux

    Figure I need to have all 3 major OSes in the house. And I need to learn more about Linux.

    Looking at building a PC that will run Linux all the time except when I want to play games, then I will boot into good ole XP.

    Question I have is what video cards will play nice with linux and that will allow dual monitor. Since dual monitor is almost mandatory for me nowadays.

    I generally stick with NVIDIA, looking for a card with some good pep to it, I want to be able to play most of the current games with a decent FPS. Right now my MacBook Pro boots into Bootcamp for my gaming but it is not ideal, plus I need a nice desktop other than my Media Center.

    Thanks,

    NVIDIA works well on Linux, it has good drivers. Dual-monitor works fine, I use it myself. Here is my device section:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier  "Card0"
            Driver      "nvidia"
            VendorName  "nVidia Corporation"
            BoardName   "GeForce 6800 XT"
            BusID       "PCI:5:0:0"
            Option      "NoLogo"
            Option      "TwinView"
            Option      "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1024x768"
            Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "DFP-1 RightOf DFP-0"
    EndSection

      NVIDIA, NVIDIA, and NVIDIA. Those are your choices. I refuse to touch another ATI card due to their poor drivers.
