ATI HD 4890

I'm not that big of a gamer so I don't pay much attention to graphics cards.  However, this question pops up quite often: what's a good video graphics adapter for Linux?  The recommendation I got from a thread in the forums today: the ATI HD 4890.  The suggestion owes much to the open source driver support that ATI provides.

Phoronix has an in-depth review of the ATI HD 4890 on Linux.  A scan of eBay reveals that it's pricey, thogh, for me at least: around P10,000 ($200), give or take.
