Subject: Video cards

I am running 64bit Gentoo (of course) and looking at upgrading video 
cards.  I have an ATI 8500LE right now.  I have that working ok I am 
having one problem.  I am trying to use learn Blender.  It crashes at a 
certain point due to a bug in Mesa.  There is a bug report for this and 
it has been fixed upstream in Mesa 6.3.  I have 6.2 and since that seems 
to be bundled in with Xorg, I think, I don't know how to upgrade to a 
newer Mesa.  I have tried the Modular Xorg (with Mesa 6.4) but 
xorg-server won't build.  I went back to the latest stable one.  I then 
tried the ati-drivers.  It compiles, I get direct rendering but X 
crashes and complains about unknown symbols. 

I am think I just want to get a new card, mine is 4 years old.  I am 
thinking nVidia.  I am wondering what is good in the 100-200USD range?  
And how good is the support for amd64?  \

Thank you
