Hi all,

I have a MSI Motherboard (PM8M2-V) [1] with one AGP slot, and plan to
buy a video card (with TV-out). After searching Ubuntu forum, I
spotted an ATI Radeon card, which seems to run well on Ubuntu [2]:

 * ASUS ATI Radeon 9550 256MB 128bit [3]

AFAIK, this card is available in stores nearby my area, with price
around RM 168*.

Before buying it (and regret ;-), I think it's better to ask for
comments about this card, or any suggestion for other AGP video cards
that works on Ubuntu. BTW, I will use the card mainly to try out XGL
and MythTV, not for gaming (yet). Any suggestion?
