ATI video card, why?
soon, since official, open source 3D drivers are on the way, but for

I use ATI cards all the time and they are excellent - I'm using a dual hed ATI
card right now and formerly had two dualhead cards on here for a 3-monitor
config. I have no trouble with them. In fact I buy ATI whenever I can, having
had less actual trouble with ATI than I have with nVidia.
exactly the opposite experience - and I've done an awful lot of
consulting, and a lot of free linux work for friends and relatives, so
I've seen and worked with a good variety of hardware.
All the proprietary drives are troublesome to some extent, but I know of noI do.
reason to say that ATI is worse than any of the others.
Nvidia linux drivers are always kept up to date, tracking kernel changes
within a day or so of kernel releases, are full featured and performance
is on par with ms windows.
ATI drivers lag kernel and X11 releases by months, are lacking features
compared to the windows versions, and performance is bad compared to the
