Well, I'm using a very old Matrox Millenium II PCI card, and as far as
3D is concerned - it's a no go. Not so sure with the newer ones
although I haven't seen Matrox cards claiming that they have OpenGL
support on their cards' boxes.

Price-wise - expensive, but the cards output good quality video for
multiple screens.
