I used the nvidia driver initially while running sarge on the AMD64. I
then upgraded to etch and switched to the nv driver. I was using a Gigabyte
NVIDIA GeForce 6200 PCI-Express card on an ASUS A8N-SLI mainboard. My
display worked fine.
The mainboard went bad so I had to reinstall - now I'm using the nv driver
with etch RC1. I'm using the same card on a GA-K8NF-9. I cannot notice any
difference but then, like you, I don't have any need for 3D acceleration
and the other swizzly bits.
It is to be remarked that a good many people are born curiously unfitted for the
fate waiting them on this earth.
