Does anyone know if there are *any* contemporary graphics cards
that have 3D acceleration supported by some flavour of
open-source  Doesn't have to be a super-fast 'leet gamer
system to be better than a non-accelerated frame buffer.

Matrox used to have a reputation for goodness (I used to have a
G400 or the like), but it's been a long time...

(I'm currently using a lowish-end NVidia card under the nv
driver, but it has issues (of which no 3D accel is but one...)
