I own a matrox g450 that is ok for my needs. It's quiet and fast enough.
It runs well on debian i386 but didn't manage to make it works with
OpenGL / DRI with debian amd64 (of course with the all same hardware -
nforce3 amd64 hardware).

My main test after glxinfo is to run tuxracer to check if it works well.

Does one of you have any good experience or any advice with these
graphic boards on 64
bits linux ?
