Graphics card recommendation

I'm in need of a new graphics card for a new computer, that I hope will
run FreeBSD (with a strong preference for AMD64) and compiz-fusion on a
dual-monitor, which I believe means the 3D acceleration has to be in good
working order. I don't really care whether the graphics driver is binary,
or freely-licensed.

Has anyone bought a recent graphics card that they know to be working in
x64 with 3D acceleration?

I've heard Nvidea support is probably better than ATI. Some of the GPU
choices I see are like GeForce 9400/9500/9600 GT, GSO, and/or GTX+ series
or the GTS/GTX 2** series. Are some of those better-supported than others?

I didn't see anything recent on this list or the website, and there wasn't
much response on IRC. Recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
