    Hi,

    Since we didn't find good solution for my brother's PC (see other topics I posted recently), we choosed the easy way, so he will buy a new nvidia graphics card.

    THe choice we made is the MSI gaming nvidia GTX 760 OC 2gb ddr5. I'd like to be sure this card will be perfectly compatible (of course using proprietary drivers) with Ubuntu current version + steam linux, and also that it will offer the best result under wine games too.



    We'd like to order the card as soon as possible, so your help will be appreciated.


    thanks

    I made a few researchs myself, and finally my brother ordered the card ;)

    Very good card with enough power (sorry if you can wait to october nvidia shows low price, this card fall to 220us)

    And seems in same month nvidia shows Geforce 960

    However in your described hardware, many things must run very smooth like as wine in many games

    Resuming very good hardware selection, especially if use wine

    :)

    My brother bought this card because he had a saving coupon until month end ! He made a really good deal ;)

    Concerning the games, he prefer big games (mostly action), where I prefer indie games. For example, he doesn't understand why I like faster than light !

    On the last setup I built for him, with the radeon card, he obtained allready very good results. I can't imagine how good the performances will be with a more powerfull card perfectly supported by linux ! the pc will litteraly fly I presume.
