XGl/compiz work quite well with ATI cards. I recently installed Ubuntu Dapper Drake to try out XGl/compiz and I did not have a single crash.

There are some howtos how to set it up:

Probably there are others. Just google for ubuntu xgl compiz howto.

It wasn't totally trivial to set it up and I had some problems, but if you want to invest an afternoon, you should be able to do it (if your hardware is supported).
