Can't speak for Red Hat, but since they only support the open source DRI 
drivers I guess you should look for the best supported DRI cards. 
Currently the fastest cards supported by DRI are the lower end ATI cards 
(Radeon 9200). If you're no gamer and only use 3d ocasionally that's 
fine (I'm running a radeon 8500 without problems).
