I have a ATI Radeon HD 6300 graphics card, and I'm wondering if it is better for me to use the drivers available via Additional Drivers or if I should download and install the driver direct from AMD?

The current ATI drivers present on the Ubuntu repos are buggy and have performance issues.

11.8 will run Unity poorly and will refuse to run Gnome Shell and 11.9 will not be much better in terms of performance and will run Gnome Shell poorly.

I strongly recommend installing any of the ATI driver from version 11.10 up.

There is a post that explains how to install, remove and restore drivers.

Since your card is on the supported hardware list I see no reason why you should be running the outdated drivers in the repos.
