pick a discrete card...
The last I looked, the only discrete card options were Nvidia. I suspect ATI support would be comparatively more expensive.

I would expect that nouveau will be an option eventually. You might need to wait until some nouveau dev gets their hands one one of these boards.

I'm sure *someone* has nouveau working on the thing already, but not don't think everything needed is upstream and released yet, etc.
Ahh, I didn't catch the "discrete" part. thanks for the clarification.
