Any nVidia card from an FX5200 up is good enough for
most 3D graphics. Of course this means using a binary
only driver and betraying the entire philosophy of
the FSF :-)

If you want a pure open source solution, get an ATI
Radeon 9200 or earlier (with the R200 chip) which is
also good enough for most 3D.

Hope this helps.


PS "wokstation" ? Are you cooking your scientific
data :-)
