pci express card on debian amd64 sarge


Hi,

I am about to buy a workstation with:

1) motherboard: Supermicro H8DCE

2) CPU's: 2 AMD Opteron 246 cpu's

This motherboard supports a PCI Express slot and thus I would like, if
possible, to take advantage of this resource, when acquiring a graphics board.
Specifically, I would like to check whether any one knows that either (i) an
nVidia 6200 120 PCie, or (ii) an ATI Radeon X300SE PCI-e video card would be
supported in Debian AMD64 sarge and how these cards compare (which one is
better?).

Regards!

They both work on 64bit debian. I find nvidia's drivers are a little easier to install.
