I can't comment on those cards specifically, but I do know that
Nvidia's support for Linux has been much better then ATI's support.
I'm running a Geforce with Gentoo, and it's running wonderfully, and
I've had lots of troubles running ATI cards, with drivers taking out X
and a few other freezing problems.
on the myth side, which you already commented on, I can't see either
card breaking a sweat displaying the mythtv stuff..
