How new a navidia graphic card can I use
« on: January 10, 2009, 07:18:19 am »
I am getting quote for a new Hybrid PC.  How new a navidia graphics card can I use.  I would like to use a 9500GT and I see the driver is available on the navidia website but can I use it with LinuxMCe is my question.
I realise that not all card have been tested and I am happy to be the test crash dummy if noone has ever used this new a card.  I am more looking for the 'no way on this planet will a card that new work with LinuxMCE' type response.  If you think it is possible with some 'tweeking' then I will try one.

ASUS P5Q SE/R, Gigabyte 8400GS - Composite TV, 4GB 1066, Intel E8500 3.15GHz dual core, 500GB HDD + 1TG HDD, Divco FusionHDVT DVB-T Digital Dual 4 TV tuner.

Yes it should be possible, however prepare for loads of tweaking as you will have to install and configure the latest nvidia drivers yourself, and the AVWizard will most likely give you a rough time.  See Display Drivers in the wiki for more info.
