Funny, having just written this, I updated my system and it did some
stuff to kernel etc and killed my driver. So on reboot I had no
desktop and had to let it reset to the vesa driver, install envy-qt
and reinstall the Nvidia drivers. Now for me this was easy but for  a
noobie it would be a nightmare!!!

So with that in mind maybe the OP should go with intel based graphics cards!?
