pci video card for AMD64

I'm currently in the process of converting an Opetron sever board
(Tyan k8S 2850) into a linux workstation, and I'm looking replace
the on board ATI Rage XL with something with better resolution
and color depth. The system only supports 32 bit PCI cards.
Any advice on a video card that might work with this system and
one of the more common x86_64 linux distrubtions would be

Thank you,

As far as a 64bit linux distro I know off the top of my head that SuSE offers a 64bit version. I am sure there are others but not having used any others I can't comment. Now the video cards are easy. I checked and the following cards were there and in stock. All of them were under $100.00:

XFX Geforce4 MX4000 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

eVGA 064-P1-NV91-LX Geforce4 MX4000 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

CHAINTECH Geforce4 MX4000 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

JATON Geforce2 MX400 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

eVGA 128-P1-NV94 Geforce4 MX4000 128MB DDR PCI Video Card

JATON Geforce4 MX440 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

JATON Video-208PCI-64Twin Geforce4 MX4000 64MB DDR PCI Video Card

JATON Geforce FX5700LE 128MB DDR PCI Low Profile Video Card

All of the cards are nVidia chipset cards and all of em will be compatable. I hope this helps.
