I can't speak to the nVidia graphics, since I bought Intel on this
motherboard (and two months later, AMD bought ATI and started releasing
specs), but 64-bit Flash works very well here.  I've used Iceweasel and
now use Chromium, and they both seem to work fine.

I haven't encountered any other problems on amd64/sid.
