It has following video card: PCI-E 512МБ ASUS "EN8400GS/P(LP)" (GeForce 8400 GS, DDR2, D-Sub, DVI) I do not know either it is NVidia or not. I guess it does not work fully now because 3d games are too slow. Would Yellow Dog Linux be better? It is not a problem for me to install everything needed. Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
