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.
