I am going to buy a new PC and want to make sure no issues come with the graphical card and PyMOL.
The PC will run on Ubuntu 11.10 on a Intel Core i5 2400 vPro.
The card will be NVIDIAGeForceGTX 560 Ti
Does anybody had any issues with this card?

That card _should_ be fine for typical PyMOL usage. But, be warned:
that card will NOT do 120 Hz stereoscopic 3D. You need a Quadro card
Upon looking further, the card supports OpenGL 4.1 and NVidia usually
has pretty good drivers. That's good. But, my only concern is that
it's marketed for DirectX (usually, gaming) performance. PyMOL is pure
OpenGL, not DirectX.
As always, with Linux, check your driver and distributions's release
notes to see if your card is supported.
