I've been using Mint on a P4-3.0 / 1gig of RAM etc. I have an Nvidia FX5500 / 128mg 8 x AGP card in it connected to a Mitsubishi 17" TFT monitor.
I have the latest Nvidia drivers installed. Here's the problem.
I can't seem to get a nice sharp image. Fonts always either look "over sharp" (crappy) or slightly blurred. Playing with the clock and phase setting on the monitor help until you open another program and then it all turns to "you know what" again.
If I connect a Windows PC to this monitor it is fine. If I use this Nvidia VGA card in another machine on this monitor it is fine.
I just bought a 32mg Matrox G450 VGA card for this machine and was wondering three things:
1. Is Matrox and Mint a good thing?
2. Do other find these types of low quality font issues with Linux?
3. How do I download and install the Matrox G450 drivers?
Appreciate any help offered.
P.S. How do I add an image to my screen details at the left of this page?
