nvidia, grahics card to buy


Hi guys I am going to buy a graphics card to day in 3 hours.
I only want it for that beryl 3D and google earth, and for some 3D games. I don't plan to play top of the range video games at all. I am on a limited budget. I know to get a nvidia as there are open source drivers and binary drivers. I use mepis 6.0.

can you tell me if these will work and which has the best poformance. I don't want to spend more than 30 uk pounds.

here is what I am thinking about


Sparkle GeForce 7100GS 128MB DDR2, PCI-E, DVI, HDTV Out, Retail Box

Asus GeForce nVidia 6200 TurboCache, 512MB, GPU 400 MHz, 4 Pipes,DVI-I, S-Video/TV Out,

http://www.advancetec.co.uk/acatalog/Asus_nv_pcx.html

AT-FX 256MB Palit 7100GS, D-Sub DVI-I/S-Video

http://www.advancetec.co.uk/acatalog/AT-FX_.html

128MB EVGA e-GeForce 6200LE Turbo Cache 128MB DDR2 Passive Heatsink Mem Clock 526MHz ,GPU 350 MHz ,2Pipes, D-Sub, DVI-I, S-Video/TVOut, Lifetime Warranty

http://www.advancetec.co.uk/acatalog/Evga_pcie.html



please note I don't like I idea of turbo cash, and would like one with DV-i, as some day I plan on getting a new LCD with DV-i. I would like s-video to be there too, but does that work with linux. I have an PCI-express slot available. my motheboards inbuilt graphics card 3D ain't supported and it don't support open GL at all.

be great for your help

Or why not try a card like mine, a really good workstation card, really good for graphics and plays high-end games too. The entry level segment should be enough.

I had to take that card back as my pc does not have an PCI-express slot so I got an AGP card instead. I got an AGP N6200 Nvidia card from ASUS. does the 3D excelaration work with this card in linux, and where is the driver for this card. I use simply mepis 6.0
