VIA and Nvidia GFX is the way on Linux.
nForce driver support is indeed poor. However, ATi has had an epiphany and is now releasing new Catalyst-branded Linux drivers for every card from the Radeon 8500 to the Radeon 9800XT. Just go to the web site, go to the Software and Drivers section, select Linux, select Graphic Driver, select Radeon 9600 Series and click Go.
Download an RPM for your X server version, install it and follow the installation instructions.
