I have no experience with that product. I did install 10.3 on a
slightly older P5GD1-VM just last Friday.

My experience is: be very careful when you buy a graphic card and want to use
3D acceleration. I
have an ATI Radeon 9700 Pro and get sporadical kernel hardlocks. I'm going to
start a new thread about this
issue as soon as I have accomplished some more tests that should narrow down
the cause of the problem.
So don't buy a graphic card before you find out that it is known to run stable
in a really existing system
(just an entry in some hardware DB saying that it is "supported" isn't enough,
see my case).
