I purchased this card for about $160 in the hopes of having faster 3d rendering in xmame - but it wouldn't work for me under a clean install of R5F1.

It will work with VESA drivers in a limited fashion, but you won't be able to play videos or games or watch TV live with this driver.

It does not work with 9775 revision drivers, and knoppymyth has trouble probing it at all.

I even attempted to use the beta x86 linux drivers which is the only drivers that Nvidia recommends using with the 8600 series which can be found here

I downloaded the kernel sources and tried to recompile the module and the drivers. It will compile, but i couldn't get it to play nicely with X and would get it hanging on a black screen, constantly trying to find a mode that worked. I played with xorg.conf to no avail.

Maybe someone has better luck, but for now, I think you can avoid this card at least still nvidia releases a stable driver that you can work from to make it work with this kernel and X. If someone has a different experience please share it.
