When a card is not mentioned you have to assume that it is NOT working.

However: The FSF hardware database is quite incomplete. There is some more data 
at But even this list seems not to 
be maintained regularly (I sent the maintainer an update 3 weeks ago but 
happened yet).

As for nvidia cards I have to say, that 3D is working with nouveau and 
Gallium3D with my
GeForce 8400 GS but has some problems with the (onboard) GeForce 7025 I use at 
So it's mostly try&error.

Older ATI cards should work with 3D. I once had an ATI with Radeon 9250 chip 
that worked 
flawless with free drivers.

With Intel graphics chips you should have have no problems (mostly).

Kind regards,
