Video Card - PCI Express - Suggestions...

I need a very basic PCI Express card for my fedora 6 box. Can anyone give good suggestions for something that is as close to 100% compatible as possible? I have had issues with other cards working so I'm a little nervous.

I've always had good luck with nVidia chipsets. (Although for gaming, you will want the nVidia drivers)

After that, the manufacturer is up to you. try searching newegg to find a list of cards that might work. You can also check out the hardware compatability list:
