    There are compatibility restrictions like slot type, voltage, BIOS type, presence of bridge chip etc.

    Regarding X5000: not yet supported by MorphOS. Wait for 3.10 and see what will have changed in terms of graphics card support.
    Regarding Sam460: Use an R500-based Radeon (X1300 to X1950). R500 is well supported by MorphOS (including 3D) and mediocrely supported by OS4 (including Compositing, but no 3D).
