you are baseing every thing on games

Hmm, okay. I'll poke around a bit to see if I can find any good deals. Also, since I am using a Crossfire compatible board, and I buy an nVidia card, would I see any performance, compatibility issues?

Yeah...I can vouch for the ATI support in linux being horrible; they don't even have AIGLX + Beryl support for x1k cards (you don't get 3d desktop eye candy unless you use Beryl/Compiz + XGL (which is buggy if I recall) )

I hear that ATI's stepping all of that up though soon... but don't hold me to that. I have this feeling that they're going to continue the trend of really crappy drivers.

Not only that, but getting DRI to work is hard enough as it is...it literally took me, a semi noob at linux, about a day to troubleshoot it, and get it working; and even then I still don't know what I did to fix it.

EDIT: Nope, you shouldn't, I ran an ATI card on a nVidia chipset and it was fine.

Hmm, after searching on Tiger & newegg, I was only able to find http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150189 - However, I want a gaming card, not a 'general use' card.
post #25 of 28
thats a VERY quick card right there

Perhaps go for a non-passive one though?

You can get a 7950GT for less than $200, which is a great deal in my opinion; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143090

As for your current issues...
Many people have problems with fglrx and x1600 cards. Try following these two methods (the second one may work a bit better); http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide

Hmm, couldn't I just put a fan on it you think? Or mabye one of those PCI slot fans above or below it to remove the heat. From the reviews, the heat got pretty toasty from just idle (61C) ... Hmmmmm

Ooo, thanks for the link there. I'll be sure to try it when I get home (at work atm). =)
