I was planning to upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 because I have fallen in love with KDE4.

Now I own a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900XT graphics adapter, will that be a problem? I heard the latest NVIDIA models cause performance issues due to a driver issue, does the same hold true for legacy cards? Will KDE4 run smoothly on my system?

I am reluctant to upgrade because of the hassle it might entail.

hey got a question for you, my experience with Nvidia has been the worst ever on kde4, never tried the 8.04, how does the graphics work on that one?

Fine on 8.04, but it that's all KDE3, not KDE4.
