Welcome to the team.
ATI cards were *supposed* to be becoming more and more stable after amd took
over for ATI, but I have yet to see a improvement in their drivers.

I've always had better luck with nvidia cards and that's about all I buy
nowadays. Good luck with your ati card though.

The wiki or the forums are a good place to start your research.
