The supported chipsets may be 18 months old, but the cards with them are 
still produced, as really cheap low-end cards with passive cooling. (Fedora 
12 now supports the HD 2xxx/3xxx (r6xx) and HD 4xxx (r7xx) cards, see mesa-
dri-drivers-experimental for 3D support.) Now to be fair I don't know how 
things are in Australia, but here in Austria (note to the geography-
challenged readers: that's pretty much on the other side of the planet!) 
there are plenty of places selling them, several of which have stores in 
Vienna where I could just pick them up, no shipping. Is there really nothing 
older than the not-yet-supported HD 5xxx (r8xx) series being sold Down
