Thank you both for your replies. I def would like to stick to NVIDIA
for the support in Linux. But just wanted an idea of what cards do well
for decoding and such. I know the accelerators built on the cards
aren't made equal! :) Still accepting responses but will definately
check into a 6200. Just want the best quality I can get without
spending a fortune of course! I like the price! :)
