I think one of these based on the R200 / rv250 / rv280 would be good.
Open source 3D acceleration is available on all Radeons up to and
including the 9250 (rv280). The 7800/rv200 and below are supported by
the radeon DRI driver; the 8500 through 9250 are supported by the r200
DRI driver. Both r200 and radeon DRI drivers use the radeon DRM driver.
