Re: [PLUG] Which video card to use?
I have awesome performance with the free radeon driver. Much better than my nVidia box, and the nvidia card is significantly more powerful.

I used calc or when the screen saver kicked in. It did look good when it
wasn't frozen. I ended up using the ati driver supplied by xorg. It works
fine, I get 1440 x 900 (I think) but my glgears (is that it?) is slow,
around 220. I'd try the nVidia.
