The nouveau project aims at producing Open Source 3D drivers for nVidia graphics cards.  According to the nouveau project Wiki 2D-support is in fairly good shape with EXA acceleration, Xv and Randr12 (think of dual-head, rotations, etc.). Randr12 should work for all cards up to, and including, Geforce 9000 series, although some issues with Geforce 8/9 laptops may still exist, for such issues bug reports should be

Fedora 10 Dual Head Graphics Card

Hopefully this post will provide readers with some useful up-to-date information on the subject. This particular graphics card (EVGA P/N 01G-P3-N959-TR) was of interest to me for a number of reasons
