I think you will always prefer to run the binary blob to get the best 3D 
effects, so which one has the better binary blob support.  In my 
experience, it's nvidia.  Another question to think about it is:  will 
nvidia's binary blob be better than the open source driver for the ati? 
  I think the answer is also yes to this question.  A third issue is 
timing.  You are buying this now, but the ati binary blob is still 
problematic, so how long will you have to suffer until the driver 
improves.  Most likely months.  With nvidia, the answer is that they 
support their cards with good drivers (certainly better than anything 
from open source or ati.)
