Today I ran the script at some machines with different cards:
Thanks, I've added these results to the benchmark list.
It is interesting to see that the Radeon 9250 is faster with DRI disabled
than Matrox G550 with DRI enabled.
I believe this is because the Matrox driver only supports a small number of DRI features compared to the ATI drivers. I assume the unsupported features still rely on Mesa software emulation. See the Freedesktop DRI feature matrix:

It may be old but I was able to find plenty of them for sale online (new and used), very inexpensively. Based on the performance results so far, I'm now recommending the 9000 Pro. I wish I'd know that a week ago - I just bought a 9250! :-)
I tried to edit your wiki to add these benchmarks, but the page was read
only for me.
Edit access, requires an account login (to prevent wiki spamming). Click the "Login" button at the bottom and then "register" and it will email you a password.
I think it would be a good idea to add a column "options" between
the bit depth and fps column.
