Hoi forum,

one of my 19inch monitors has died.
I am now thinking of getting me 2 new 24-inch monitors (Full HD, 1920 x 1080, Iiyama Pro Lite B2409HDS-B1)

I think my current graphics card (nVidia GeForce 8600 GT) will not be good enough to support that.

Which graphics card should i get to have a decent eve gameplay on ubuntu 10.10?

thanks for the help

On the nvidia side, just to "future proof", I'd say a gtx series card. I'm currently using a 260 overclocked maxcore and its smooth as silk, but if you can fork out a few extra iskies, then the higher numbered gtx's would be the way ta' go.

That said, the 8600GT works just fine with multiple monitors, but for HD stuff + fast fps gaming, the GTX series is where its at.

thanks for your reply Sevarus James,

i think initially i have to see how the 8600GT will perform with those two babies (because the monitor investment will drain my isk reserves).

Which GTX and how much RAM should it have?
