Cheap graphics cards

Posted on Jan 1, 2003

After spending time agonising over an ATI All-in-wonder 8500 LE (almost 200ukp), I bought a 25ukp no-name card with an NVidia GeForce 2 MX/400. It works well under Windows 2000 - much better than the NVidia Vanta it replaces. Sure, it doesn't have a DVI connector, but I figured that I would sort that out when I upgrade my TFT panel to one with a DVI port :-)

Linux drivers for the GeForce 2 MX seem to be binary only from NVidia, so that's a joy that I'll deal with when I need to do so (downloading a new Debian now...).
