I'm happy with my Matrox Milliennium G450 DH. I'm not sure about it's
video playback capacity, but check it out, at least one of its
immediate successors should be good at it. It has explicit Linux
support, and Matrox has a mgapdesk tool, which is GPLed and in Debian.
It's not a serious gamer's card, since the 3D support is not very good,
but it is crystal clear in 2D, and that's important when you stare at
the screen for most of the day...
