      Coincidentally, the GTX 600/700 series is about all you can afford!

      The 980 TI is selling for more than I paid for, years ago. Heck, I bet I could sell mine at its old MSRP.

        One reason for pairing a GTX 780 or older using Nouveau with a RISC-V system over an AMD card is if you plan on running a FLOSS distro. Those won't load blobs from the kernel for firmware which means all AMD cards don't work but Nvidia 700 series or older work just fine with Nouveau. If one were going for an FSF approved distro (or Debian without non free repos) this pairing makes sense to me.

                I can figure out, without video acceleration I can't get YT reproducing a video using Firefox on an old AMD E350 Fusion, only Vivaldi barely get a decent reproduction because it has video acceleration.
