 +===== Notes =====
 +For the graphics chip you can use both the open source nv module and Nvidia'​s proprietary one. For installation instructions,​ you can view our [[Configuring a nVidia graphics chip for Linux|Configuring a nVidia graphics chip]] guide. For 3D support, you will need the proprietary module. Some older versions of X may not have support for the Nvidia GeForce Go 7600, in this case you will need to use the proprietary module.
 +===== Summary =====
 +There were no problems getting it working. With older Linux distributions the graphics card and sound card may not be supported, so it is recommended a current distribution is used.
