Redhat 7.2 comes with xfree86 4.1.0.. take a look at this site for compatibility with that version.. might give you an idea of what card to use or buy..

Nvidia cards are bit of a pain because you need to download new drivers or recompile from source every time you change your kernel. They can also be unstable with some distros in my experience, although my Geforce2 Mx 400 is working fine here on Debian Woody and SuSE 7.2 (with pam and pam-devperm updates).
