My System Specs

Default ATI vs Nvidia: No diff linux drivers

Some say ATI drivers have improved in linux, vs. Nvidia, so no difference now. I need to get a cooler running card as this one is baking me in Florida. I'm not much of a gamer, mostly have older titles hence no need to break the bank. I'll be trying other Linux flavor's but only have Linux Mint (and 7 & XP) now.

So I'm trying to decide between ATI and Nvidia. Have read for years about advantages w/Nvidia for gaming but I don't want to open a can of worms here. Just need some help deciding on which way to go and any recommendations.

Card wise I'd appreciate good support and at least a 2 yr warranty (and honor it) but quiet is a major consideration. Prefer 128b and a HDMI, 1GB. In the neighborhood of $50 I'm considering a GIGABYTE GV-R667D3-1GI Radeon HD 6670 1GB, possibly a SAPPHIRE 100323-2L Radeon HD 6570 1GB but consider Sapphire a crap brand. Anyone think EVGA is a good company?

Thanks for any tips and go Senators!
