I switched from RH9 to Fedora and believe it was the right thing to do.
I have a GeForce something card but I'm using the open source drivers. 
Nothing I do really needs the extra abilities of the proprietary
drivers. Plus, I don't like the fact that every time a new kernel comes
out, you either wait for a new rpm or recompile it.  Just me.

Can can recommend strongly enough to search the archives for nVidia.  It
has been very well discussed.  If you are familiar with the process of
rebuilding the rpms for each new kernel and installing their proprietary
binaries that you should be in good shape.

The fedora-test-list had a thread on
video card recommendations.  Search on "best video boards for xfree86"
