Default nvidia 7300 and ATI RS485/485C chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

I have an Nvidia 7300 GS and ATI RS485/485C chipset.
I've tried drivers 100.14.11 and previous ones with the same problem.

My computer locks up always (within seconds, if i'm lucky within a minute or two, I run any 3d aplication like beryl or google-earth). This is similar to the "nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)" thread but it seems to happen more frequently.

I've done lots of things:

- Newer kernels: 2.6.20.10 (the driver doesn't compile in 2.6.21)
- Older kernels: 2.18.x
- Disabling ACPI, APM, APIC, SMP, everything.

My hardware:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3600+
1GB Ram DDR2
Mother MSI K9AGM, ATI RS485/485C based
Soutybridge SB600 (known to have problems when Message Signalled Interrupts are enabled, anyway the problem is still there if pci=nomsi is used)

I've tested my RAM using memtest and there where no errors reported.
I'm using a 32 bit version of ubuntu feisty, I've also tried 64 bit version of ubuntu edgy and debian etch for 32 bits and problem is in all of them. I think the problem might be in the nvidia driver, any help?
