This is a compilation of many of the different video solutions available. It is not exhaustive. If you don't find what you want, search for it.
Please do not post questions in this thread looking for a solution that is not listed. Use other threads for that.
Please do post other good known video solutions in this thread. I will try to incorporate any posted solutions into the list. Otherwise, users can read the thread for any other solutions.
AGP cards - see the old AGPGart driver and the new AGPGart driver and forum.
ATI cards - see Callisto, AGPGart and Koverg patch and combo patches like All-In-One and Katana. For 10.4.8/8.8.1, check out Natit.
x200 - Use Callisto beta 3 (fixed) to get 1280x800 resolution
x300 PCI-E - Go here (Italiano)
x800 and similar cards - Go here
x850XT AGP - Go here
x1400 Mobility - Go here
x1600/x1800/x1900/x1950 cards - see the Borisbadenov manual method or use the NeoPheus installer method. They use slightly different methods, so if one doesn't work, try the other. (does not work for x1600 mobility video or for x1650 video card). Also, check out the Titan and Natit projects for new breakthroughs. Beta Natit installer.

All In One package - Koverg + Callisto + Framebuffer for x600, x800, or other Radeon cards (like maybe 9700). Go here
FireGL Mobility V3200 - Go hereBeamsync - Disabling Beamsync speeds up performance on LCD monitors only. Use QuartzSimple or QuartzDebug or type this command into Terminal.
Blue screen - if you have an Intel graphics chip on a laptop and the boot is hanging at a blue screen,
try installing: an external monitor, a VGA dongle, the 2-wire trick or the 1-wire trick
