I want to add an Ati R7000 video card to my Ubuntu system, but I can not find info on how to do it properly. I already tried just installing it and booting, but it came up as running is low graphics mode and then I ended up with brown and lines across the screen. I uses this as my media system and I play games on in since they have some of the most interesting games free with the system.

You cannot add more ram to your graphic card, If you want more ram for optimum system performance I recommend buying a new ATI, or NVIDIA graphic card to replace the old one. they both have the best cards on the market and visit their site at NVIDIA or ATI.com for more cards information and where to buy them. REMEMBER TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT BOARD TYPE FOR YOUR SYSTEM. IF YOU HAVE PCI BUY PCI CARD, AGP=AGP CARD AND PCI-EXPRESS= PCI-XPRESS CARD I recommend 256MB RAM for PCI systems, 512MB RAM for AGP systems and 1GB RAM for PCI-EXPRESS systems.
Plug a PCI VGA card into one of the PCI slots on your motherboard and connect your monitor signal cable to this add-on PCI VGA card and turn on your system . If your monitor shows the usual startup screen then you continue booting your comp and let the OS load , thereafter you BACKUP your DATA . Use a PCI VGA card from TRIDENT or S3 etc., so that your OS will use built drivers to display at 256 , 16 bit or 24 bit colour depth . These motherboards have problems around the GMCH or the Northbridge chip which has Graphics & Memory Control integrated . The refresh signal to your monitor does not indicate proper working of these GMCH . The memory of your comp needs attention and a check .
