Comment 10 for bug 1652713

i have looked up the graphics card you have - its an integrated Q35 express
chipset - approx 13 or more years old!

I strongly suspect Mutter - which is the display manager - is falling back
to software rendering. Such an old graphics chipset as you have noticed
struggles with modern desktops. Probably better to look for a fairly cheap
nvidia card - look at the compatibility list on the nvidia 375 series
graphics driver

As long as the keyboard doesnt have lots and lots of specialised keyboard
controls - all of those should work with linux. Hate to say it - Google is
your friend ... if others have seen these work with any linux in the last
few years you should be more confident than just buying blind!
