I'm looking for a stable PCIe x16 graphics card for a custom built server. Doesn't need to be gaming quality. Just something to output video with stable, reliable drivers and support.

A Radeon X550 should be sufficient if you aren't gaming: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102565

Looks like it would fit the bill. Follow up question:

When updating drivers for a graphics card, who should you use? The manufacturer of the card (in this case, Sapphire) or the ATI website?

I would use the drivers from the package first (they should ship with working drivers), and then when updates are needed, I would go with ATI.
