Radeon HD4650 has worked well for me for some time.  The only 
problem I've seen is Firefox occasionally corrupts window borders. 
That might be Firefox or GTK or the radeon driver, but has been minor 
enough that I haven't pursued it.

Some people report lockup problems with other versions of Radeon on the 
forums, cause unknown so far.
