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
