I believe both NVidia and ATI cards do 1600x1200 on DVI but avoid
the Radeon 7500 like the plague as it apparently does some kind of
weird interpolation and is blurry. I'm almost certain the 
GeForce 4Ti's and Radeon 8500/9700 do it at that rez and nice and 
crisp too but each third party card may very of course. As to 
Linux drivers Matthias may have some thoughts as he's used both.
