Well, here are a few quick tips:
1) Locate the type of chip set for your video card.
2) Look at the man page of the driver; and search in
the page for that chip set. If I am not mistaken
there is more than one driver for ATI. IE:
3) Match up the driver to the chip set on the card.
4) Always double check the reference material for the
chip sets listed in step 1.
PS: tomshardware.com gives good reviews of video
cards; with the added bonus of listing the chip sets
that is used in the card (typically).
Hopefully this should give you a starting point.
