I am running 8-current amd64 on a e6850 with 4 GB of RAM and currently
have a nvidia 5200 GT.  Well I have a $100 gift card for amazon and
decided to use it to get a new video card.   I also run vista and
occasionally a live cd for linux but I spend 90+% of my time in
freebsd.  My main use of the machine is (java) development, light
office apps, maintaining my companies web site and light gaming (the
only thing I use vista for) [currently c&c 3 but I want to try some
newer things {I never play first person shooters}].   I have never
used anything except nvidia cards but in seeing that the closed source
driver is not going to be out anytime soon for amd64 I am willing to
consider an ATI.   Suggestions?
