    What card would you recomend to people?

    It is becoming harder and harder to find supported cards it seems.
    Finding a card with decent 2D drivers for X can still be done, but 3D is
    just not really an option it seems. Even 2D seems to be a problem on
    many cards if you don't use a binary only driver.
