Which is the better graphics card, for gaming, multimedia, 3D rendering and video editing? ATI or NVidia?

I recently bought a HP Probook 4321s and it comes with a 1 GB ATI Radion Premium Graphics card. I haven’t yet installed any intensive (like World of Warcraft, Crysis) games, nor have I done a lot of graphics or movie making on it yet, but I will have to do so in the course of time.

Will it be as good as the Nvidia graphics cards?

Also, I have once read on the web that ATI graphics (GPU) cards have more incompatibility or other issues with Linux. I have used Ubuntu on my desktop PC, and I will install Ubuntu 11.04 when it comes out this month. I am not sure if the ATI card will work very well with the Linux OS. Currently I am running Win 7 Pro and it’s been working well.

    My HP Probook 4321a has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6370, 1 GB. Is that a fairly high-capability graphics card? Can I run intensive games like World of Watercraft and Crysis on the computer without any glitches?
    And do 3D video editing and transcoding?
    I am currently running Windows 7 Professional SP 1 on the machine.
    Thanks for your answer and Thanks to MUO Answers!
    Please tell me.

    Well always go to the high end of the graphic cards and you will see that both Nvdia and Ati are close, your choice will depend on what you want to do.

    for gaming, multimedia, 3D rendering and video editing then Nvidia GTX 590 and Ati Hd 6990 are excellent

    Ati had some problems since Ubuntu uused X.Server 1.6 and ATI didn't support it immediately.
