you actually need 3D accelerator or just fast 2D card?

if second - buy for <<50$ (or get for free) used computer, lowest end
pentium will suffice, plug good PCI graphics in it, and make an X terminal
to connect to your high-speed computer.

there is one more adventage of it - you may connect more than one :)

Unfortunately, yeah, I do need 3D acceleration. I'm not running any games
but I am doing some OpenGL development (should've said that in the first
place, really).

afaik openGL always requires local display

I would guess the development and testing will be done on the same machine.
