You don't need the greatest graphics card for Linux anyways.

depends, if you want to do anything remotely 3D accelerated under Linux you WILL need drivers, and if you've got an ATi your screwed
post #7 of 10
I'm running Ubuntu on my laptop which had an ATI driver, (I forgot which). It took me about 2 months to get it working, and using a setup guide that was meant for a different distro, as none of the ones for Ubuntu would work for me. Even then, it still has probs with a portion of the screensavers.

And the point of this review is? Fglrx currently does not support 1950 cards, neither does radeon (the open source driver), so you would be left with basic 2D functionality for those cards. Should have used supported cards. That review sickens me.

They don't even make 1950 drivers, of course a 7300 will be better. I can't even run Beryl on this dang thing...
