Default compatible video cards?

Greetings, Folks.

This is my first post, not only at this forum but also on the subject of OpenBSD.

I think your motherboard has some free PCI slots, so something like this :

And this video card is fully supported by OpenBSD

As an OpenBSD (and BSD in general) newcomer, I find this topic to be more elusive than others. Is there perhaps a known database of what video cards (or other hardware) work and which do not? It seems even Radeons have their limitations.

I could be a bit green, but I am having a difficult time trying to get my Radeon HD 4890 (1GB) card working with Gnome 3. When I install gnome 3 with pkg_add it fails to start and after installing a live cd with Gnome 3, it loads using the software rendering.

My point is, how do you know what is "fully supported" ?
