You mean nouveau or nvidia-current?
I prefer nvidia-current.

I suppose there are few occasions when both realtime and 3d graphics are 
needed at the same. Perhaps when doing live-music and graphics from the 
same machine?
My experience with karmic (puredyne) and -rt was very positive when it 
comes to stability and performance.
As long as it is safe, I prefer nvidia-current support.

I have one bad experience from -rt, when two of my hard disks died at 
the same time. This was last year, with Centos and planet ccrma 
installed. Old hardware, and the computer did not shutdown properly. A 
few days later, when I started the computer, the hard drives were not 
recognized by the bios.
There were some problems with irq and acpi. Irq problems, because of 
some pci cards, I think.
Not being very smart on the subject I can only speculate what the cause 
was. Maybe lightning?

I can do testing on amd64 and core duo, both with nvidia graphic cards
as well as P3 or P4, but without 3d graphic drivers.
