BFG 6800 Ultra, I want the BFG GeForce 6800 ultra 512...oh, but I don't know if it will work under linux. I saw in the HCL about the 256, would the 512 be any different, it's just more video memory after all. Please help this n00b.

Yeah i don't see any reason why it won't work. I wouldn't get that card though get a 7800GTX 256 MB and if you need it a new mobo you would see more of a difference and it would cost less.

Like what sarge extreme said, the GeForce7 7800 GTX will be a much better buy.

Why you need that much video memory anyways?
