I have a dell dimension 4700 (refer to my poor mans PC build under builds and upgrades) and i dont want to drop the 25 bucks on buying a new graphics card... so does anybody know any OpenGL updates i can use... or should i drop the 25 bucks and get a graphics card... also the selling point for me would be DOES it crank out more processing power because it doesnt need to be partitioned for internal graphics?


always use DD-WRT for all your routers, if you cant get it for them, throw them away

I would not bother with the card, That system will run Ubuntu just fine.
