I'm looking for a new graphics card, but all of the Linux-specific comparisons/reviews I find are at best 6 months old. That's well before all these new cards were released for the Christmas season.
So, here's what I'm looking for. Hopefully some of you will have some recommendations or know of some reviews/comparisons I can read.
1) Decent Linux support, including hardware 3d acceleration.
2) Video out support that works in Linux.
Reading through the mplayer documentation it seems to suggest that only the Matrox cards have video out support working Linux, but I can't seem to find any other documentation confirming or denying it.Update:
I've chosen a card. "CARDEXpert GeForce2 MX TwinView GoldenSample"http://www.gainward.com/us/products/geforce2mxtwinviewgoldsample.htm
Has all the features I really want and a decent price. Has dual heads so I can plug in another analog monitor, a digital LCD, or S-Video out to TV. And I've confirmed that the NVidia drivers for Linux support TV-Out. Even helpful instructions on how to set it up.

For my choice I mainly relied on article: http://pcworld.com/reviews/article/0,aid,73853,pg,2,00.asp
