Notes

  • Stay away from Nvidia Quadro 420 video cards. Note that Dell sells this card. On Linux they install the vesa driver and you get "wimpy video". The Nvidia graphics driver installs but never finds any "screens".
  • Stay away from Nvidia GeForce 310 video cards. Note that HP sells this card. On Windows with HP driver, get black screen / no display. On Linux the same with driver.

Motherboards

Stay away from Nvidia chipset based motherboards.
