Default Getting a new desktop, GTX295 in Linux?

Hi everyone

I am assembling a new desktop computer with the following configuration:

Intel Core i7 920 CPU
Gigabyte EX-58 Extreme Motherboard
Corsair 3 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM
Palit GeForce GTX 295 1792 MB DDR3 Graphics Card

I was wondering if someone here has experience of using Linux on this motherboard or this graphics card (or both), or similar configurations. I searched the forum but did not find any threads apart from the one about the geforce driver.

Any inputs about anything I should keep in mind while installing Fedora 10 (or any other Linux distro for that matter) [the stuff is yet to come].

Thanks and cheers
Vivek

I have a similar setup here:
ASUS P6T Deliuxe V2, X58
Core i7 920
6GB DDR3 1333
Geforce 285 GTX

Running Fedora 10 x86_64, everything works fine (sound, network, X etc)

(Note this is a single GPU card, so no SLI here)
