    The 'mess up' is that drivers for earlier nVidia card (using 96.xx and 173.xx drivers) didnt work with xorg 1.9 (shipped with 10.10).

    You've got a totally differemt issue with the GTS450. It needs driver version 260.19.12, 10.10 only comes with 260.19.06. So to get a GTS450 going with 10.10 (with the nvidia drivers) you will need to either manually install the drivers, or use a PPA.

    Tclarkie, the x-swat drivers I pointed to in the thread you linked to is now for nvidia 260.19.21. Not sure if my OEM psu (375 watts?) could handle the hotter double slot cards, so I got a GT 430. Even though it is so new that the kernel does not have a model for it, it works great with nvidia drivers.

    lspci | grep -i nvidia
    Code:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0de1 (rev a1)
    01:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation Device 0bea (rev a1)
    nvidia-smi -a

    For HDMI audio I had to get newer alsa subversion from ppa's (per another thread on 4xx cards in multimedia forum).

    This card from Galaxie idles cool and quiet (only 2 C above room temperature).
