Regarding to what cards are supported a search engine could help you.
One note might be important, if you need the proprietary driver for the
graphics, take care about the fact that proprietary ATI drivers only
work for a few versions of X, the drivers never will be upgraded.
Proprietary NVIDI drivers get upgraded and should work with all versions
of X. The FLOSS drivers usually don't cause issues, provide good enough
3D acceleration for averaged tasks, e.g. Google-Earth and running Xfce4
doesn't cause issues, but if you e.g. want to run Cinnamon or GNOME,
then the FLOSS 3D acceleration could be much to slow.
