I'm making up plans for when I eventually want to build my own gaming desktop with Ubuntu installed and use the steam client Linux version. The only thing I'm having problems with is what are the best type of graphics cards/drivers for Ubuntu? Other words, which company has the best support for developing the graphics cards/drivers that are used on Ubuntu? Should I choose AMD,Intel,or Nvidia for my graphics card?

- This question does not appear to be about Ubuntu within the scope defined in the help center.
I'll try to answer, knowing I risk flames because this is mainly based on personal experience. I tried to approach all GPU providers with an open mind when I was evaluating them though...
This is my understanding at the moment:
I'd really, really wanted the AMD card to work, but it broke me. I've settled on nVidia because of the convenience...for now.
