Graphics cards that work with Linux Mint 12

We have recently bought 2 different graphics cards(ati radeon 6790, and nvidia gtx 560ti) Neither one of them have worked right. I was curious as to what graphics cards(mid range $150 each with 2 cards or $300 for one better card) work the best out of the box, please be specific as to what brand and model number. Thank you

What do you mean by 'havent worked right'?

Have you tried installing the closed drivers? There should be a 'hardware drivers' tool with mint 12. Using that will let you install the closed drivers easily.
