Recovering ubuntu from graphics card crash

I have a dual boot system (XP/Ubuntu) and have had a graphics card crash on me. I have installed a new graphics card (after the first one stopped responding) and I am able to boot into windows no problem. The new card is a Gigabyte ATI Radeon 4650 HD. I did install an ATI catalist control center in Ubuntu under the old card but Ubuntu complained I did not have any ATI products installed so I think I uninstalled it (I was about to start installing drivers when the old card crashed).

Ended up doing a search for any packages with fglrx i them and using apt-get -purge on them. That allowed me to boot into Ubuntu but now I have to figure out how to update my drivers without it crashing.
