Oops, I just posted asking for a comparison of these cards! Do I feel like a doofus or what! ;-) Does the Nvidia GTX 260 work well with WINE?
It sounds like AMD is too slow with developing drivers for Linux still but let's face it, the money is still with Windoze. I guess those cards are similar for performance even in Windows. I really want to support ATI but I am not very patient and after going through the motions installing the Nvidia proprietary driver, I am not sure I would be able to deal with the growing pains of ATI drivers/issues right now. Unless, there are some recent developments with AMD/ATI that would suggest the contrary?
