Radeon 9250. If that's not good enough for you, you can get any Radeon up to
X850, the r300 driver works pretty well these days as far as I know. But STAY
CLEAR of any Radeon above that! R5xx-series chipsets only work with the
proprietary fglrx driver which causes all sorts of problems (or with the
completely unaccelerated vesa). You have been warned!
If you want the cheapest you can get, that would be the Radeon 7000. But it
will probably suck for Compiz/Beryl.
See this page for details:
Not that ATI/AMD really deserves your money as they aren't doing anything
whatsoever to help out the Free drivers, whereas Intel does, but unfortunately
you have to replace the entire motherboard (and realistically, the CPU too,
unless you happen to have a recent Intel CPU) to use Intel's graphics chipsets.
