    AMD or Nvidia Graphics Card for Linux?


    In the future (probably a few months), I am planning to build a PC myself. I have already chosen all hardware, but not the video card.

    I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition 64-bit on a Acer laptop with ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics and the proprietary drivers don't work well (lag when dragging windows/scrolling).

    So here's my question: which brand of video card should I chose: Nvidia or AMD?

    Current System Specs

    • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.00 GHz
    • GPU: ATI Radeon Graphics 512 MB
    • Model PC: Acer Aspire 8920G

    PC is now about 4-5 years old.
    Future System Specs

    • CPU: Intel Core i5/ AMD "Bulldozer" (8 cores)
    • GPU: ?

    Thank you in advance
