Video card suggestions

I'm in need of a new video card (I honestly don't know how I've survived with mesa). I would normally just run out to the store and grab one, but my experiences with my ATI card told otherwise.

That said, does anyone know of a decent video card that plays nicely with Linux (openSuSE) and isn't ATI, for around $150?

Pick anything from the nVidia line.. you will need to install the proprietary drivers, but nVidias drivers work good in Linux.

Also check out the LQ HCL. Personally, I'd recommend nVidia as well
