NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M
Would this one work well on Linux? couldn't find any big complains on forums about it.

I think any NVIDIA works on linux, but then again, I could be mistaken.

Not playing gw2, not playing anything... Just getting ready for summer ending.

Ask Val, he runs linux as well I believe, every nvidia card I've used on Ubuntu it has detected...

idk how good the 640M runs. But I think if your laptop has optimus you might need to use ironhide or bumblebee for the switchable graphics to work.
For me, I haven't been able to get either to work on mine (have a gt 420m with optimus) so I've been stuck with intel graphics on linux since my bios doesn't have options to disable one of the cards

From what I've heard the current gen of Nvidia hardware has some issues, they would likely be hammered out by the time the fall distro release cycle comes along though.

AMD apparently has had the same problem this time around.

Though if yo want to use the Gallium3D drivers the best cards you can use are the HD6800 series, anything faster doesn't work yet.

I suggest you go to the Regnum Online Forum. There you can receive more extensive feedback about Linux and graphic card than we can provide here.
Wyatt is so juicy, he's such a badass. he is fearless, he is like this carnal, feisty terminator type. he is really naughty and that makes him so much fun to play. Wyatt rocks!
