Don't know how well they'll communicate. I seem to remember reading
that nvidia boards presented more problems than average when I was
looking for a new MB, so I avoided them.

I went with a Leadtek 5700 card, but that's not in this range AFAIK. 
Nonetheless I generally have had minimal problems with it.  Read the
docs for the modules and kernel bits, and note what needs to be done
for X as well.

_teachers_ and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, 
because passing civilization along from one generation to the next 
ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone 
could have.     - Lee Iacocca
