Older ATi cards (Radeon 9200 series and earlier) as well as most integrated
Intel stuff and some mostly-obsolete Matrox cards all have Free Software
driver support (including hardware-acceleration)

I've had problems with the R200 driver and heavy OpenGL usage. However, my
tests with the new modular seem to show that is has been fixed.

Actually, The GMA900 integrated chipset is supposed to be of similar
performance with a Radeon 9600-ish, from what I've read.

Hope that helps.
