Title: New machine built- 12.04 is desired, what video card is good and install friendl
Post by: baltimorebytes on June 18, 2013, 03:43:10 AM

Hello all,
I have had some problems trying to get my ASUS HD 6670 to be usable. I have a 64 bit win 7 pro system and I am trying to complete a dual boot partitioned install via USB stick. After having real issues,(stuck on purple), and still unable to solve this, (being a noob), I think it might just be easier to install a different video card that is more of an easy fit for Ubuntu. Does anyone have recommendations? I dont need anything massive but a 2GB card would be nice. Have an Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 MOBO.
Thanks in advance.
