I could never get that ATI driver from ATI to work, it froze my machine when 
I used calc or when the screen saver kicked in.  It did look good when it 
wasn't frozen.   I ended up using the ati driver supplied by xorg.  It works 
fine, I get 1440 x 900 (I think) but my glgears (is that it?) is slow, 
around 220.  I'd try the nVidia.
