[AG-TECH] Best single machine *Linux* hardware setup

Don't know how Linux copes, but a pair of dual-head cards,
one in AGP and one PCI, or a triple and a dual/single, seems
a reasonable way to go to get performance.  Maybe use the
tripe on AGP to drive projectors, and PCI for console.  There are some
cards coming out in both AGP and PCI-X form (QID is one) but
I realise QID drivers for Linux may not be available yet (and
have had no reports on whether the Windows ones are reliable).
