Question PCI Video Card suggestions


I am looking for a PCI Video Card for a Slack 8.1 box. Specifically, I would like it to have accelerated 2d support in the XFree 4.2x and to be play DVDs well. If it can offload the DVD decoding to the card all the better (I plan on using mplayer). 3d acceleration is not an issue since this is for a multi media box.

Any suggestions?

Meph
