im using an nvidia geforce 7300 card, and it is working properly on hardy,
and i use the monitor settings from kde to change resolution, and i also
noticed that i get far less problems if i let the restricted drivers manager
do the installation of the card. back in gutsy, i used to run into a lot of
problems after installing the nvidia package from nvidia's website.
