Ubuntu: Where can I find out if a graphics card will work on the newest versions of Ubuntu?



Question:

I'm really a newbie at graphics cards and have NO clue anything about them. I want to surprise my dad for his birthday with a fairly nice graphics card as his old one doesn't work with new versions of Ubuntu. He cannot run Unity at all and he wishes to. He has a Dell XPS 410 Desktop. I'm looking for a card that will run Ubuntu 13 and future versions. He doesn't play any games, he surfs the web constantly. I don't have a lot of money, 300$ is my limit for this card. I've looked through the hardware supported but as I'm not really good at an of this I have no idea what it means. Could someone just suggest a few good cards? Thanks!!


Solution:1

You can check out the Component catalog. The component catalog contains devices from 242 manufacturers.

You could also check out the Ubuntu Certified hardware

Nowadays, it really doesn't matter anymore. I found that both nVidia and AMD have great proprietary drivers. Nvidia might have a bit better drivers I think.

So no worries about drivers.. just worry about which card fits your needs and budget best. :)
