Thanks for that. Looks like a reasonable price too.


"Bleeding edge" refers to technology that is very new and the implication is
that it is untested / unproven and could well cause you some pain in once
sense or another!

I think nvidia's card will be a good choice,considing its perfect official
driver and compatibility.I tried several cards including mx440 fx5200ultra
6600le on my box as well as my classmate's.They all work perfect.In your
case,6600le may be the choice.Do remeber install the official driver.

By the way,would anybody tell me what does 'bleeding edge' mean?I am
confused by it today.

I have Ubuntu installed on a Dell SC420. I'm currently using the on-board
video and I think that's the main cause of some of the issues I've been 
having with xorg.

Can anyone recommend a video card to buy for use with Ubuntu? I'm not going
to be playing video games or doing high end graphics work. I just need
something that will give me good quality output at 1600x1200 resolution. I'd

prefer to go for something that is already tried and tested with Ubuntu.
