I'm sitting on a G450 here.  Works great.  I've never heard anything
bad about the 550 either, and it's a bit more capable.  But then, the
550 is also like 6 years old now (and still >$100 new, and uncommon
used), and none of the newer Matrox cards have info released either.
Your choices for a late-model graphics card with released information
for an open driver are limited to...  ahh...  well...  no, not that
one either...   uh...
