if you plan on running Linux don't use an ATI card

I agree. nVidia has the best drivers and is easier to install, but..
A few years ago I managed to get real good performance with an ATi Radeon9800XT together with Linux! But... it didn't work right from the box. I needed to compile my own Linux kernel in order for the ATi drivers to work with full 3D acceleration. I was then able to play Unreal Tournament 2003 with pretty good speed!
I would recommend Debian over Ubuntu, any day. It's of course a matter of personal choice. I've been using Debian myself since 1999.
