Wanted to add a couple of working cards:XFX GeForce 7600GT PCIe x16
Works with everything I have thrown at it UI2, alpha blending no problem
Works now in 8.10 and 10.04 out of the box.
256MB DDR3, SLI available if you're that brave
Was extremely cheap 4 years ago so probably available as wholesale lots now...
Able to support twin x screens with small tweeks to xorg.conf. Used as a media director in the living room or the bedroom.
- Display is mirrored to both DVI outputs so one DVI out to bedroom 23" monitor, one DVI out to DVI-to-HDMI cable connected to 60" Sharp Plasma
- Doing 1080p to both displays though the monitor DVI port is connected to DVI-to-VGA adapter to make it through my VGA KVM switch.
Nvidia GeForce 6600 AGP x8
1 VGA, 1 DVI (I think there was an S-video)
AGP slot, 256MB
Worked with Medium settings in 1004
Installed on loan from roommate to test a troublesome Media Director = Didn't get to play much
Failed to setup X on first MD boot. I ssh'ed in and poked my nose around without altering anything. Did a standard reboot and it booted back up to av wizard.
Large card for a MD and required a molex power connector.
Still to test
An older 128MB Radeon AGP
The always lovely Intel 82845G (onboard)
Homemade AGP riser for htpc cases or crazy case mods I like to mess with
USB video - I am getting one of these with hopes of adding new options for MDs, will stick it in a laptop if it fails horribly
