And talking about models, havent ATI announced an unified driver model or something? One driver fits all like nvidia drivers?

Generally speaking, I have read an article once that confirmed that ATI is rock-stable in Linux as it is in Windows; again it REALLY depends on the ATI model number. Newer ATI’s, like the 9700 series and the 9900 are stable in Linux because ATI update their drivers more often than Nvidia do. I’m not sure about ATI older model numbers though, you’re going to have to email them and see.

Anyway, I use Nvidia cards and am perfectly happy with them. They are actively supported (the devs have a forum for getting feedbakc and helping users), and good enough cards. I'm not going to buy the latest and greatest megamoney card, so all these ATI vs. Nvidia holy wars don't really matter to me.
Didn't quite get this codey stuff the first time :)

they used to have official linux drivers, but they have since been stopped, AFAIK, and so they only way to get on is to use unnofficial drivers. Obviously, this isn't as good, but it may be OK. Not sure how good OpenGL support is though.
nVidia is almost certainly your best bet with linux/BSD, etc
