If you "don't really need powerful graphics", then you don't really need the pain of a premium priced GPU for which fully capable FOSS drivers never exist, do you?

My recollection is that the GeForce GT 710 with driver built by rpmfusion provided non-gaming but TV-capable performance through VGA and HDMI ports at a less-than-premium price.  It would be good to have a build of the recent update.

I have an old machine with a GT720 that recently quit working with the Nvidia drivers. I was pleasantly surprised that it finally was working well with the nouveau driver, which simplified updating considerably. I am presently running Wayland on it, and the main complaint is that I can't set where a particular window will open consistently. I also have a more recent machine with a much newer nvidia card, and there nouveau still hangs (unpredictably), so I am still using the nvidia drivers there, but I am using Wayland. I have both machines using F39 and KDE.
