Nobody can tell you with certainty that you will not encounter problems. I can tell you that I just updated to 10.04 with no problems for my video card (see sig. block). In fact, Ubuntu installed the latest Nvidia driver (195.36.15), for my new kernel (2.6.32), and I am completely satisfied.

Up until recently, I have been downloading and installing Nvidia's proprietary driver, but I found it annoying to have to repeat everything for all my distros every time I got a kernel update. Now I let the distro's software update managers handle it. I may be a version or so behind on the driver, but what I get is usually well tested.

Cheers, Lou

EDIT: The only times I have experienced problems with Ubuntu updates, is when there was an interruption in internet services. Recovery has always been painless.
