Review of Linux Compatibility

The passive cooled PCI-Express card from EVGA bases on the NVDIA GeForce 210 chipset. The low priced card is equipped with 1GB Ram and provides moderate 3D performance, but is fully supported by Linux (Ubuntu 12.04, OpenSuSE 12.0).

Due to the low profile of the card (the card height needs only one slot) and due to the passive cooling the card is a great choice for Media-Systems (e.g. VDR, HTPC). For this scenarios the performance of the card is sufficient:
