Almost time for me to upgrade my lowly Geforce4 MX440! :lol:

And it is available for purchase NOW! $600 at newegg. Just as soon as they confirm linux support though...

Hmmm, well they say linux support. However they also say it is designed for pci express 16x, and it doesn't appear to support AGP. Might have to settle for a 6800gt. :cry:

..or for a 6600gt. As it's price tag doesn't give you a heart attack and it is just.. good enough (a phrase companies just hate)

I second that motion! Plus I've played with the 6200, pretty darn good for the price. (Close to the pricing of 5200/5700LE's, and WAAY better)
