    you should be able to use the "savage" driver provided by dri and xorg people.

    for more info

    Code:
    man savage
    you can also look here for a starting point
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    nvidia is the best supported of the two major card manufacturers. (That being ATI and Nvidia). Nvidia did just release new drivers which support the new 7800-7900 series cards so any nvidia should be fine. I actually just bought a 6800XT and it works great. Techimoe has a nvidia install tutorial somewhere here on this site that will assist you.

    But if you choose ati they have drivers and they work just fine, but many people have trouble with them and they aren't as feature packed as nvidia's. But I have /had a radeon 9200se and it worked just fine.

    I suggest a 6600GT. will play any game out right now, and costs around 115$ at the moment which is an incredible deal, if you want more, get the 7600GT which costs around 200$ (i think) that when overclocked can pass up a much more expensive 7800GT
