I'm also using nVidia GeForce 7600 GS (G73) here, using the
"nvidia" driver and the kernel module. Works very good, except
my GPU is broken and occassionally freezes the whole system
in an unpredictable manner. :-)

Previously I've been using an ATI Radeon 9200 (RV250) with
less trouble, using XFree86's (and later on's) stock
"ati" driver.

Any not-too-recent card should work fine.
