    Well he said it was for a media center and that he already had an E450.
    Ahhh OK....but for a new rig, even for a media center / low end gaming machine, integrated graphics is the way to go....

    It's dificult to find a low profile , fanless with minimal good performance VC....and at low price AND not using ATI GPUs...

      which integrated graphics?

      ati has the problem that it doesn't support full video acceleration (misses mpeg2 acceleration and various other things)
      intel , as far as i know has still some big issues with 24Hz mode and some other bugs.

      sad but true, nvidia is still the best option for a media center on linux if you want it all. i personally use a GT220 event hough i have an integrated ati graphics. i wish i could use that integrated one a save another 10W.

        Not using 310 yet but 304 removed settings like Gamma.

          There seems to be a setting... does it not work?

            You might be able to use the 'xgamma' utility.

              Problem is that the gamma settings are still in ~/.nvidia-settings-rc, these get loaded at login (overriding xgamma and KDE Display Settings), and NVidia Settings sets them to 1.000 (way too bright 0.700 is perfect on my display).
              Before I found that out, I first set xgamma in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, then I needed to launch xgamma again from Autostart. I had a disco light show with those back and forth changing gamma settings. As that is absolutely unacceptable, I'm back in the 1990s changing config files by hand. Fucking NVidia.
