NVidia have, until recently, not been very friendly to the open source community.

Yeah i was reading recently on Phoronix that Nvidia is going open source in a hybrid fashion as it will only be modern cards and parts of the code will stay proprietary, Not sure where this will leave the future of Nouveau drivers as they are already broken with Wayland and doing bat **** crazy unstable things.

Are AMD cards playing nice with Wayland as a lot of the top distro's all seem to be talking about moving over to that as the default?

Rainmaker:

if you only care about rendering the desktop and playing back x264 flawlessly, then any cheap 2nd hand AMD card will suffice (even down to RX280 or earlier). If you want x265 or VP9, you're going to need anything after Vega and you'll pay a lot more. For games? Dunno, I don't play them.

Thanks :)
