    I think the drivers might actually be the same; I'm not sure how ATI works, but the driver for all NVidia cards is nvidia or nv, depending on whether or not you want hardware acceleration. Several friends of mine use ATI and I'm pretty sure all of their drivers for ATI are fglrx, or something of that nature.

    I believe there is a universal driver architecture for ATI cards much like nVidia, or at least that is what they are working towards on linux. If your card is running and you are getting 3d acceleration you are most likely fine as you are.
