Sorry I'm not explaining myself fully, but I'm set on using the P35 motherboard. I don't care if the video card works that great in Linux, it's a different OS. As for budget, I really wouldn't want to spend more than $75 on a video card... But I'd still like it to be able to do moderate or casual gaming such as TF2 and other source games when in Windows. Oblivion we can throw out, I don't play it too much.

you could push your budget a bit an get a 4830 Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H483FN512P Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards that will do a bit better than the 9600gso. 84$ instant save from 97$ then 74$ after mail in rebate.

Why does it matter what brand it is? You should be making your purchase based on performance not brand brand preference. Especially when you're on a tight budget.

I also don't understand why you are set on using the p35 chipset. Its an old chipset.

And you get more card for the money with ATI right now. But to each his own. The 9600 I linked to before will do you good.

So you're not building a whole new rig? You're just changing the the video card? That makes more sense, but it is still dumb to get a card with the same power as you had before. I don't really understand what is motivating you to do this.
