Will Debian 3.1 support a Geforce FX5500 GPU?

I am building a new computer and have decided to dual boot WinXP Pro and Debian Sarge. I am looking to buy an XFX video card with a Geforce FX5500 GPU. Is this card supported and will I have any problems finding/installing the driver. Any information is greatly appreciated.

You should have zero problems getting that card to work. Just download the driver from nvidia.
