I'm an ATI user and hate their linux driver and lack of support. I've
had it about 5 months and still cannot get tv-out to work or watch a dvd
without flickering. And they don't even support an "official" forum or
mailing list or bugzilla. So, they obviously intend to be unresponsive.
If you have a choice, go with nvidia. I had an nvidia before and
wasn't 100% satisfied with their efforts, but at least they had people
assigned and provided a forum to get some help.
I'm trying my best to find an nvidia replacement card for my laptop, but
have struck out so far. Are laptops that difficult to change a card on?
