I didn't want to jinx any other replies you might have gotten.  The
only XFree86-usable cards I know that are still on sale are the old
Matrox series g450 and g550.  The price, if you can even find them, is
over 2x the Radeon prices above and you only get a card with limited
memory and a slower RAMDAC.  The frustration of finding a new card for
XFree86 convinced me it was time to install xorg and not look back.
