Thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly.  If you wouldn't 
mind, could you recommend what the newest fully supported AMD Radeon 
cards/series for DragonFlyBSD are?  I apologize to keep bothering you 
with this, it's just that as I search the mailing list a lot of the 
posts are older and may not be relevant for the current release, so I 
want to be sure before I buy anything.  Thanks again, I truly appreciate 
all of the work you and the other devs have put in.
