Ok, Im looking to get a new card for my secondary system and have been looking at the cheaper end radeon 7000 since I can afford $40 but not $200 for the latest and greatest GF4 or 9700. I can get a 64mb SDR version or a 32mb DDR version, both with tv out. The 64mb card ends up being about $3 more than the DDR card. Which would be better? The one with more ram or the faster 32mb DDR?
Mainly it will be used for 2D stuff but I'm thinking I may use it to temporarily replace my geforce1 card for games until the GF4 prices or ati 9700 prices drop in say 6 months. How is linux support for the 7000 also? I've looked a little bit into it. Seems a bit sketchy at best. At least that was my impression from RedHat and Mandrake's sites. I suppose if I end up using it in my windows box for gaming the linux will be a moot point for awhile.
