    That's interesting...
    How does the NVidia 5500 perform against my old GeForce 2 MX/MMX 400?
    (I was also going to buy a 'new' video card...'

    i upgradedd my gf2 mx400 with a gf 5700 and have has a far more stable time (before my card would lock up). also for the few games i play i get decent performance - was able to run doom3 at 800x600 and it ran quite well with all the goodies on.

    Linux support is okay, it was kind of a bitch to set up. I even got 3D support on x86_64.

    Re:New Video Card

    Okay peeps, I just received my new nVidia card and would like to know what do I need to do once I install it?

    I'm currently using Debian Sid, Ubuntu Breezy & Mepis.

    This is the card I bought.

    Just run the nVIDIA installer for their drivers. You can get it at www.nvidia.com

    Re:New Video Card

    I tried installing the drivers but get all kind of errors about kernel headers are something similar.

    Right now I'm using Win XP. All my linux distros will not run in X mode. Can i reconfigure X to get in graphical mode?

    Anymore ideas/suggestions will be helpful.

    Thnx.

    Hmm.

    Install kernel source,
    kernel headers.

    Edit xorg.conf according to the readme associated with the drivers.
    IIRC, its :

    1)changing the driver from "nv" to "nvidia"
    2)disabling DRI (remove the module and the bottom section giving it permissions.
    3)adding "glx" module in (I replace dri with this for simplicity)

    Re:New Video Card

    for ubuntu

    "sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-settings"

    once installed

    "sudo nvidia-glx-config enable"

    restart x

    ;D

    NVidia drivers are pretty easy to set up.
    Here is a howto for Debian.

    Re:New Video Card

    Thnx for the help. I have Ubuntu working like a charm. Now to get Debian Sid and Mepis going.

    I wonder if the apt commands would work with Debian Sid?
