	Yes, _PLEASE_! (s/video cards/chipsets)
	I use AMD, not Nvidia, but I have been looking for over a year
for a low end card actively supported by drm-kmod and/or
drm-current-kmod.  Figuring out which chipsets they support ... let's
just call it both educational and frustrating.
	(For anyone in my position: I _think_ the RX 460 and above
support GCN 2.1, which is what I _think_ is the bottom-end
specification.  Cards matching this number seem to start at about
US $50.)
