Talking Dell GX260 for RedHat 8.0

I am ordering a Dell GX260 for RedHat 8.0. Suggestions are needed for choosing compatible hardwares, such as Video, Sound and Network cards. I appreciate your help :-)

Video... wow, anything Nvidia, Matrox or ATI, pretty much in that order. Sound, well, Linux is getting there with the top of the line sound cards, some of the really badass audigies aren't quite up to par yet, but aside from that you'll have a hard time these days finding a sound card that isn't supported entirely. Network, pretty much the same thing. Some of the dells tend to ship with this Broadcom adapter that is being a headache and isn't in kernel yet, so its best to just take your pick from their 3com offerings, all brilliantly supported, or pick a realtek8139 variant, whichever...
