Hi. I've bought a ATI Radion 9000 64Mb and now I'm happy! It runs movies of any kind with postprocessing. I've already tested it by running Quake2 and Quake3arena with Wine under FreeBSD 4.9. They both are looking more alive than under Windows with nVidia TNT2! Even more if you believe top, 60% of CPU is idle while playing Quake2 with Wine! (Coppermine 900, heated to 1008MHz, 112MHz external)

If someone interested here is as I configured the card under FreeBSD 4.9:
1) I had very messed XF86Config after my failed attempts to set up nVidia TNT2 (I will sell it to hell). So I recreated one with /stand/sysinstall -> Configure -> XFree86 -> xf86cfg -textmode. I prefer text mode configuration. The string ''Driver "something"'' substituted with ''Driver "radeon"''.
2) Included ''device radeondrm'' in my kernel config and ensured that ''device agp'' is there too. Recompiled and installed a new kernel. (I like the way of this in FreeBSD!)
3) That's all.

If someone has any suggestions or remarks then please email me.
