Support of different GF brands?

Hey guys,

I'm considering to buy a XFX GF 6800, and I was just wondering, do you think I'll have any problems with it on Fedora 4? Does it matter which brand I choose? (In this case, XFX/Pine.)

Nope, regardless of brand, all 6800 cards use the same chipset and thus the same driver. Different manufacturers may clock cards to different speeds but it's the same core
