The 550ti according to that chart performs damn well with Nvidia's driver. Considering it's last gen, you should be able to find that for very cheap.
My personal experience was with the Gigabyte 550ti, had 2 fans on the heatsink and was dead silent. It's everything you want in the card.
I used Linux Mint as well, it was as simple as launching the proprietary driver application. It'll search and install all the drivers you need to get your hardware working; much simpler these days.
