    I'm not sure about that video card in specific, but with the exception of the optimus series, the Nvidia proprietary drivers typically work quite well.

    EDIT: Also, really not sure what you're asking/looking for advice on.

    Not completely sure about that Netgear wireless adapter, I tried using the Netgear WNA3100 and it would not work at all, tried using ndiswrapper and all that stuff, finally found some adapters from Asus that works right out of the box in Linux, less than $20.00 at Ebay. Can't post the link here but Netgear's web site doesn't even bother to mention it works with Windows let alone Linux.

    Yeah, I bought an ASUS card for when I was on internship and the place I was at only had WiFi. It was like $40 IIRC (new), but THEY supported Linux and it worked like a champ.
