Re: [PLUG] Which video card to use?

well, i've used the nvidia binary driver for my 7960GT and it was 
slightly a convoluted install.
granted i'm a gentoo user so i didn't expect it to be point-and-click 
either way,
but from what i hear the ATi driver is much much more friendly an install.

but my personal preference, FLOSS-loyalty aside, is nvidia as i just 
feel they make superior hardware. your mileage and preferences may vary.

what troubles in particular, art? artifacts, low refresh, etc.?

Bill Gates is to hacking as Sid Vicious was to the Sex Pistols: no talent, everyone hates him, and he's just in it for the fame and money.
