Quick answer: no.

ATI are releasing details which means that there is likly to be free drivers for ATI cards. Till then my preference will always be with Nvidia for high-powered graphics cards, as their proprietary drivers actually work (and they don't seem to discontinue ~popular hardware. */me Glares at ATI for turning his AGP card into a partially-useless brick. I enjoyed Tremulous... *).
