Mark (or Arthur or Hey You...)

I've found the Nouveau drivers work well for me, although I have used
the nVidia drivers in the past. Frankly, I can't tell the difference
between Nouveau and nVidia, and I avoid a lot of hassles.

I'm using a two year old Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT card and a 2007 vintage
Acer 17 inch LCD monitor with 1280 x 1024 resolution, and It's OK with
full screen Flash
