Compare their clock and memory speeds. That's how you should look at the graphics card. And if you are planing to use that in Linux, Nvidia is the way to go...

do not consider an ati card for linux unless it's amazingly better.
nvidia's better opengl implementation in linux will make it a better choice, as well as avoiding the hassle of wrestling with ati's drivers.
