Question Recommended NVidia Hardware for OpenSUSE?

Hi all,

I've got a new 64 bit Gateway system with three monitors, a Gateway FPD2185W (1600x1080) 21" LCD and two Gateway 17" LCDs. The system came with a Colorgraphic Xentera GT quad display video card, but there are no 64 bit Linux drivers available from XIG (besides, they cost $199). I've had good luck with NVidia on Linux and was hoping someone here could make sure I'm not going to shoot myself in the foot here.

I'm thinking of using a dual vga FX5500 PCI card from PNY for the two 17" monitors and a dual DVI/D-SUB 6600 series (LE or GT) PCI-Express card from eVGA to run the big 21" monitor.

(Should I look at cards with all DVI or just go for the regular D-SUB vga connectors?)

This will be running on a 64bit Intel platform and using OpenSUSE 10.0.

Does anyone think I will have problems with this setup?

Thanks,
Matt
