ATI or NVIDIA ?

Howdy All !
so I am building a new system and am trying to decide which
Video Card to get. It seems both ATI and NVIDAI have very
similar High-End cards: PCI-Express, Dual DVI, 256MB DDR2, etc.
In the past I used NVIDIA, because there just was no alternative.
Their driver support for linux is just so-so ...
But I have not used ATI, since I had an ATI card in a Notebook
half a decade ago.
What is the general opinion of this group, which one provides
better drivers and support ? Most important issues is obviously
drivers for ANY kind of linux and home build kernels ...
I am planning to use a single desktop across two high res LCDs
each 1600x1200 ...
Any suggestions & recommendations welcomed !
