Hi, thanks for the info. I don't have any specific 3D requirements, I
just want to use Xorg + Xfce on NetBSD-8, so anything that does basic
2D graphics will do for me.

I'll check out those Quadro cards on ebay, but does anyone have a feel
for Nvidia vs AMD graphics support on NetBSD? I always thought AMD
support was much better, but I could be wrong. Ideally I'd like to get
something that will just work, but can't find latest "graphics hardware
compatibility" list for NetBSD anywhere.
