I sympathize with your ATI driver issues, it's the same reason I switched to Nvidia. And while I'm happy with my FX5900XT overall, the fact is even the very cheapest 6800 card will perform a lot better in DX9 games, shaders, high resolutions, and AA/AF. I highly recommend you stretch your budget and find the cheapest damn 6800 you can find, even if you don't mod it.

and yes this is an excellent choice:
