Actually, they're going with ATI because they had some problems with Nvidia about the Xbox chip. They even went to court about it, basically there was a dispute about chip prices. So, with Nvidia no longer an option, who do you think they'd turn to? Xgi?

And BTW, the chip inside the Gamecube was not made by ATI. It was developed by ArtX, who were bought out by ATI right before the Gamecube was released.
