The xserver-xorg-videao-nv is the "free" driver that doesn't not give you 3d.
The nvidia driver is the installer from nvidia, every time your kernel upgrades you will need to install it. which isn't a big deal or difficult to do if you use smxi.
Thank you for the link. Seems to be very interesting.
I printed it and I will read it.
Let me ask you one more questions, as I see you are a guru un Linux
If I install boths drivers, x-forg and nvidia driver, which will be opereting?
I mean, which will be in use?
If my system break, can I change it in terminal some way?
Whichever driver you select in your xor.conf that driver will be used. You can anytime switch drivers by editing the xorg.conf and restarting X. Don't worry, using the proprietary nvidia driver is perfectly same, w all use it, it's not going to mess up your system.
