heh. I personally do not recommended any nvidia card, because of they poor
unstable closedsource linux drivers.
Radeon drivers are under heavy development, so they are ok, but maybe not
Matrox cards are well supported, especially mplayer has special matrox
driver too, but G450 ha sno TVout support under linux, and has poor 3D
performance compared to radeon/geforce.
If you only want to watch movies, and 3D doesn't matter, then I really
recommend a cheap ATI card, mach64 (==rage pro) or rage 128 based.
I'm using ATI Xpert 98 with success at work.
If the price doesn't matter, nor the 3D, but you want maximum video quality
and speed, buy a matrox g400/g450.
