I've always heard that Nvidia's Linux drivers are better than ATI's drivers.
I had an ATI card at one point (around 2006) and I found that installing the
driver required slightly more work than Nvidia, but I think the only major
thing was that ATI's driver required rebooting the machine whereas Nvidia's
drivers didn't. I'm not sure of the state of Nvidia vs. ATI/AMD's drivers in
Linux now though.
