hmm, presuming that you still used Utah-glx makes me think that you still
used XFree 3.3.6, since in XF 4 all that stuff is done by the DRI modules.
What i'm saying here is about XF 4.x :
Nvidia has some closed DRI drivers but i don't know if they are ok now or not
(they were not so in the past) But Nvidia says it supports their latest cards.
Latest driver update seems to be from march 15th, which seems not very
encouraging (still beta).
ATI with the Radeon looks ok looking at the last postings, but still under
development (no 100% stable/ but supported) but the development on it is very
active. Unless Nvidia make some great progress, my choice for the future
would be the Radeon.
I don't know about the Intel i810 or Voodoo chipsets, but they are worked
I'm going to upgrade soon myself (soon is relative) so unless i detect
changes with Nvidia, i'll go for the radeon.
PS : maybe better wait until XF 4.1 is out (soon)
