The recent driver discussions and comments like "we don't plan to support feature X for anything else than Windows" from Nvidia are the reasons I still work with my 7900GS... I got a larger monitor and some of my games are not as "smooth" as before, but at the moment it seems to be a bad decission to buy a new nvidia card for linux users...
Just my 2 cents.
Everything you say is true. That is the reason why I bought a low budget nvidia card so that I can switch to another solution without loosing to much money.
