Relating to the recent topics... I'm considering what I should buy for
myself as a new GNU/Linux workstation next month. I want to use 100%
Free Software.

http://cr.yp.to/hardware/build-20060107.html looks like a good general
guide, but the nVidia GeForce MX 4000 is obviously a problem.

What workstation graphics card is recommended?

Is it an 'Radeon 8500 128MB' from eBay? (Apparently the fastest r200
based card according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R200)
