Currently nVidia claims that, at least for their video drivers, they don't have the freedom to release the drivers in an open source manner (likely due to the unified driver architecture, which, if I remember correctly, was disputed with SGI for IP reasons until a cross-licensing agreement was made....).

As for the motherboard drivers, nVidia's just not doing very much right now. However, you can get third-party drivers for nVidia's sound. You can use the ALSA drivers, and I think I heard about some other drivers that you can purchase that supposedly offer full sound support (S/PDIF out and all...).
