Am thinking about a new(er) graphics card (pci-e) and have not found a lot of help googling for success stories, so thought, why not come to the source? Why not ask the Mint experts?
I'm running Mint 9 now, but obviously that could/will change and if I spend on a new pci-e card, it better be effective far past the distro I am running.
What cards are people finding pleasant success in Mint 9 or 10?
Personally, I'm not a gamer, but would DEFINITELY like to do the following:
- Play Torcs smoothly
- Play hd video smoothly
- Output full audio through the HDMI port along with the video
- Dual screen capable
- Last longer than one year.
One last thought... could the Mint forums have a category for graphics card success stories? What HW they are using and how they got their setup to work smoothly? I know there are places to go, but after setting up dozens of machines, this is the biggest problem area IMHO, and I think it makes sense to highlight/focus on it.
