    Is that only 1 Graphics or a hybrid?
    Please post:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -EiA3 'vga|3d|display'
    The Geforce 710 is supported by Nvidia.

    I am sorry, but this is graphic card of computer I want to buy. But, before I do it I want to check if graphic card is supported, since it is not integrated ion processor. This is everything that is written about it:

    Code:
    nVidia GeForce GT 710, 2 GB GDDR5

    Is this computer a laptop or desktop. If lap top it is probably a Optimus hybrid graphics setup which require install of Prim. But in geneal this should work.

    This is an Card supported by Nvidia by now, but i would use an AMD Card because they are and will be supported by the kernel.
    You do not know, when or if the support for the GT 710 ends.

    I use an "ASUS GT710-4H-SL-2GD5 GeForce GT 710 2 GB GDRR5 with 4 x HDMI Ports" (passive cooler) on Tumbleweed with the Nvidia drivers just fine.
    Only problem that I have is coming out of hibernation (screen remains dark) but sleep mode seems to work.
    The hibernation issue might be unrelated to the GPU, don't know. Doesn't bother me much as I tend to shutdown the PC when not in use.

    GeForce GT 710 has GK208 die, i.e. Kepler family.

    My assumptions:
    1. Active development for Nvidia's proprietary driver for Kepler family will end in January, 2022.
    2. Support for compatibility with Linux kernel will end in January, 2024.
    3. Then you may need unofficial patches to run it with newer Linux kernel.
    4. openSUSE Leap will support kernel 5.3.x till December 2023.

    So there is no need to swap GT 710 right now.

    All my NVidia GPUs are no longer supported by the tainting NVidia drivers, but all do everything I need done using the upstream default DDX. I rarely even attempt to use the Nouveau DDX. See my primer for details.
