    Marc, please choose a more appropriate list next time.  LKML is not  
    for user questions about "Why doesn't my monitor+GPU work?"

    Uhh, no; 1680x1050 does not require a dual-link DVI port/cable. As
    to a good GPU which "Just Works(TM)" out of the box and still has at
    least passable render performance (although not for some modern
    games), the R200-series Radeon cards (listed below) work extremely
    well. They even support a 3d-accelerated merged-framebuffer Xinerama-
    style; you can split a 3d-accelerated window across both monitors.

    R200-series cards:
    R200: Radeon 8500/8500LE/9100, FireGL 8700/8800
    rv250: Radeon 9000/9000Pro
    rv280: Radeon 9200/9250/9200SE
