Which video card has GLSL support ?

I am not familiar with NVIDIA cards, but most ATI cards newer than the 9700 support GLSL.

"GLSL allows you to write vertex and fragment shaders in a C like language", if this leaves you none the wiser, suffice it to say that it lets you make really cool looking games and demos.

Nvidia:
Geforce FX 5200 and higher
ATI:
Radeon 9500 and higher,
x200/x300 and higher
one caveat about onboard x200 video: the GLSL support is terrible- don't get it.
3DLabs:
VP and Realizm series (these are workstation oriented, not gaming and they are very expensive)

Right now the best deal you can probably get is the Geforce 6600.
