As an owner of new/shiny "ATI Radeon X1650 Pro" i _really_ suggest buy a 
nvidia one if you must choose between them. Although nvidia still ships 
closed source drivers for their cards believe me their support are much more 

But beware, both nvidia/ati cards have closed source drivers so most probably 
you won't get any answers to your questions in that list/kernel developers 
didn't listen your problems while you're using these/lots of distributions 
rejects your bug reports as a result you will alone with a piece of 
hardware :)

But what i understand from your mail u will want to use that card for regular 
daily use instead of playing 3d games etc. 

So if 3d performance is not your primary decision argument maybe you _really_ 
should consider buying an intel one so you can use open source xorg intel 
drivers/excellent support.
