ATI no longer supports my mobility radeon x300.
I would have to run Ubuntu 8.10 in order to use their driver, which 
still isn't 100% stable. It seems to be incompatible with Xorg after 8.10.
The legacy driver doesn't work either and I've had zero luck downgrading 
Which I shouldn't have to do anyway

I would recommend an nVidia card.
But that's just my opinion which is highly biased by a bad personal 
experience. ;)
