Good idea, about wiki!

I'm experimenting with AMD (Six-Core Opteron CPU, RD890 Chipset) with NVIDIA 8400 GS.
All i did were
* set 1:1 mapping between vBar and pBar
* load nvidia's VGA BIOS from the binary file, flushed with nvflash.exe utility.

And the video works in guest, i didn't see any special ussues related to IOMMU-part.

And i didn't see any mail, complaining that AMD hardware doesn't work with GFX passthrough.

I just created this wiki page:

Feel free to add/edit to make it better!

I haven't tested VGA passthru myself (yet), so there might be some not-so-accurate information there.
