Runlevel 5 and everything starts now but seem my logs below, also this
was an upgrade to the 6600 from a ati9250. I am thinking about going
back to the ATI because it seemed render quicker. Though this card seems
to be clearer with my monitor and the fonts are crystal clear. Also
within sax2 I do not see a way to change the card to the correct model,
it just shows options from with sax2.

linux:~ # cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep GPU
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all NVIDIA GPUs
(--) Chipset NVIDIA GPU found
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU detected as: Unknown
(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
