Video Card Suggestion

Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a new Video card. Want to play some Steam games. Was looking for the 1g-2g range. Was hopeing the gang had suggestions on cards that work well under #!/debian. I prefer off brands also...I don't have $200+ to slap down on a card.


Kindest Regards,
Tim Apple

Re: Video Card Suggestion

AMD or Nvidia?

If you want AMD, look for a 7850
if you want Nvidia, Try to look for a GTX 660 at a good price. ( I've seen them <$200 )

Re: Video Card Suggestion

The NVidia GTX 750 ti just got released and runs around $150. I don't recommend ATI cards for gaming in Linux, and I wouldn't advise that you skimp on video cards if you want to be able to play games.

If you ever want to do 3D graphics work, then nVidia is the one for GPU processing (CUDA enabled)
