Better in what sense?

To be frank with you, I don't think there is an accurate answer to such a question. Different people have different opinions on what "better" means, so you will have a group that will say Ubuntu is better and another that will say Fedora is better. The best thing to do is try them both and decide yourself.

You should be able to set up your video card in any of the top distros. In general, try to avoid switching distros to solve problems--you can wind up chasing your tail.

why not directly post the issues you are having?

Also, Fedora is now up to version 8, but I doubt that is relevant in this case.

In terms of bling-bling Fedora wins, but Ubuntu isn't far behind.
Ubuntu wins in User friendliness, but not by a lot. for me at least.
