I am thinking of upgrading my old ATI/AMD Radeon 4870 to nVidia (610 or 620, maybe 630). I am not playing games. I like Compiz effects though. I use ubuntu 12.10.
Anyway, I would like to ask how to do it properly. I think I have to remove proprietary drivers first (ATI Legacy 12.06), restart and install nVidia proprietary drivers, then.
This is what I did in order to install my ATI drivers:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makson96/fglrx sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install fglrx-legacy
PS: Any advice on a good but inexpensive nVidia card would be greatly appreciated, too.
PS2: Wiil I need to upgrade my xorg?
