Video Cards for Linux / Accelerated Graphics
Ubuntu is running my ATI X1550 card without any tweaking, but there's no accelerated graphics, even though the card is capable at basic levels.
If you have had success with your graphics card on Linux, with full acceleration functions, I'd appreciate it if you'd list your card & driver source. I want to replace my card with one that is fully capable under Linux. I am not a gamer, but I am looking at cards at newegg.com in the $100-150 range. I want perfect graphics under Linux for a change. I just wrote over my last WinXP partition last night for a total Linux machine and I want it fully capable.
I appreciate your input.
