This page contains a list of some NVIDIA chip code names and their corresponding official GeForce number. If you're running a recent version nouveau, you can find your chipset by doing dmesg | grep -i chipset. This will always be correct, whereas the lists below are approximate.

Be aware that this list may be outdated and incomplete. Nouveau aims to support all NVIDIA cards, but no effort is made to document which cards (and BIOSes) actually work, as this is deemed infeasible. Just try it and submit bug reports if it doesn't work.
Feel free to edit the page when your card is not listed.

NVC0 family (Fermi)

All sorts of fun. Feature-wise it isn't too different but the architecture has changed a lot.
These cards are generally working with the latest kernel and Mesa but may still have power management issues. It is recommended to use the Linux 3.1 kernel or newer (or a backported driver from this kernel).
Note: GeForce 405 does not belong to this family.
