Graphics: Pick a Card...Any Card
Now that you can see all the cards available, here are few questions that may help you choose the card that best fits your needs.
Is fast, accurate OpenGL performance important to you? Do you demand the best Quake III Arena performance?
If you require the best OpenGL acceleration under Linux, look to NVIDIA for your card. They have a great OpenGL implementation and can offer you fast hardware as well. That carries over to Quake III Arena, where OpenGL performance is critical.
Do you play Unreal Tournament or other games that require Glide?
Do you want to run two monitors at once without sacrificing a card slot for the extra video card?
Is your budget limited and you need a 2-D/3-D card with reasonable performance?
The best way to find out what you like, naturally, is to see the products in person. So while you can't buy each card to try it out, a next best choice is to ask around your local LUG and find a user with a card you are considering. Ask what they like about it and perhaps even ask to see their system up close; in doing so, you'll not only get an idea of what value you see in the hardware, but also what an owner has come to think about it as well.
