    Oh, can't edit again? Timed out? :)
    I was just going to add, if you get the dreaded black screen and no gui/desktop, you can try to edit your xorg.conf file and just change it back to default or...

    It should work in Ubuntu 14.04, too, no? I've had problems with the 'black screen' problem when installing Nvidia drivers, too. Except, that is usually due to using a newer driver than one...

    If you can find the ASUS H97M-PLUS, it's probably only $10 more? It has an Intel NIC (LAN).

    My impression from this is same old story from AMD. They don't support Linux, open driver or not. Even the binary blob should work since they use Windows code but it's not the first time I read...

    Exactly. And there's always the newer or more recent AMD cards which still don't have working drivers.

    Plus, no AMD cards compete with Maxwell with regards to power efficiency. Not to mention,...

    In other words, DON'T buy a newer AMD gpu if you use Linux? Neither Foss, nor Catalyst helps? AMD's support is sub par. Maxwell and Kepler cards have at least binary drivers. Newer or most recent...

    Nevermind, it was fixed. I'll run some tests later.

    Yes, Ubuntu with Nvidia sucks large! Nvidia XServer settings shows the previous driver is installed even though I installed 337.25! What a POS.

    Nvidia on Ubuntu 14.04 sucks!

    http://pastebin.com/Jj9ZrBdE

    What a steaming POS! ****** PPA crap. Nvidia XServer shows one version and the Nvidia driver in the repo shows a newere one.

    But, Catalyst 14.4 is supposedly working well in Ubuntu 14.04 (and probably Debian)? ;) Check the AMD graphics section.

    That's the card I was considering. Except, I ultimately went with a used GTX 750. Made the right choice? :) It's not as powerful but at least, it works. Also, I don't need the extra 6/8-pin...

    Right. Or others can wait until some gamers (for e.g.) go to the latest and greatest new hardware and upgrade their system to a faster cpu that the gamer is selling to put $$ towards their new...

    Just installed this driver. I used the 'sh' way. I bought a recent generation card (gtx 750) so I already had older Nvidia (legacy) drivers installed so the process was complicated (imho). I had...

    Please excuse my rant. I got it to work. I discovered that Nvidia ver. 337.19 (compiles?) works with Linux kernel 3.14.3. So, I got everything working in LMDE w/ Nvidia driver 337.19 and Linux...

    Nvidia problems - with new hardware

    This is a rant so I didn't post it in the Nvidia section.

    I tried to replace a 'legacy' card (using 304.xx) with a GTX 750. Bad idea.

    I can't boot any of my operating systems now. I used...

    Thanks for the input and info! But, I decided, on impulse, to buy a used GTX 750. :) I think these cards are pretty popular. It's the EVGA brand and they're nice, short htpc calibre cards that...

    I was doing that for a while. :) I found a used EVGA GTX 750 for $100 so I bought it. I couldn't find any good deals for cheaper cards. Hope it works okay.

    I agree with deppman except for the ' no muss, no fuss' part. ;) Imho, it's quite the YMMV situation and depends on a lot of variables. I've had it go smooth and other times, had to run through...

    That's why many here are getting Nvidia cards or switching to them, right?

    There's so many posts regarding the poor support of the binary drivers even though those should be easier to support...
