If you care, a radeon 9000 will beat the pants off a GF4mx440... Radeon
7500's are comparable to gf4mx's

I have just been doing exactly that,

I think I may have found the perfect card !

It's a Radeon 9000, 64Mb DDR

According to the Powercolor site it supports 1600x1200 DVI, XFree86
4.3.0 supports it (there will be some upgrades to Debian Woody
required), and it has no fan.

Plus, it is worth the amazingly cheep amount of $186.74 from Ascent.

Aparently it performs about the same as a GeForce 4 MX 440 in 3d, which
doesn't concern me at all, but it kinda suprised me as the Radeon runs
with no fan.

Anyone had any experiances with this or something similar ?
