While I may agree to Binary Only on user-space, not on kernel-space. I have been reading LKML for quite many years to understand it is taboo as far Kernel developers are concerned, and I will have to agree with them.
As for a good 3D capable card with open source driver, any ATI Radeon up to 9200 is a good choice. I am using ATI 7000 myself, and I have been very happy with it, though I am considering a 9200 SE when the current one fails :).
For more information please refer to: http://dri.sf.net
Thank you and good luck!
PS: It is such a shame that ATI have not published the specs for Radeon 900 cards (or newer) so that open source DRI drivers could be produced. Hopefully they soon will.
