Recommendations for buying Nvidia GPU Dear All, I have some plan to buy a Nvidia GPU, but as you know the support on Linux is ...

though pages like this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bin... talks about installation, but in practice in many cases it fails and the Xserver won't start.

I just wanted to ask you if you are using Nvidia GPUs, which model are you using? is it stable? what do you recommand to buy? I would appreciate if you could share your experiences (GPU on Ubuntu 14.04, Indigo) and guide me for buying. Regards.

What will you be using it for? I have an NVidia GPU on my robot (Jetson TX1) that I'm using to run a image classifier. It's stable and works with 14.04 and Indigo

That being said, I also have Dell XPS Laptop with a NVidia 960m, which is useless because the I can't get NVidia drivers installed without spending a week plugging away at it. The XPS line has 2 graphics cards which messes up the driver install and requires a lot of extra work
