Hey all,

I have to order a new video card for a Ubuntu 8.10 workstation 
here and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations.

The machine doesn't do gaming, no heavy duty design work, just 
Gimp for some basic image manipulation, and then PHP code 
editing, development stuff.

I seem to get the impression that the extra drivers that pop 
up in Ubuntu like Nvidia chips?

I also prefer resolutions above 1024 x 768, which these 
machines here default to upon initial install.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
