Two questions coming to my mind - first, to clarify, am I right in
assuming that if I don't want any 3D, I don't have to go toss my Radeon
away to run nothing more complex than a browser and a terminal in X on

As for Nvidia, there's a lot of talk about Geforce series cards, but I've
too often found them to be unstable and quite hot (just imo, no flamebait
intended). So from Nvidia, I prefer the Quadro series. How's their
functionality, are there any experiences?
