Nvidia Drivers or Alsa drivers?
 
Which should I use? Which work best? Neither of them seem to work perfect for me, main thing I'm noticing is I can't play 2 different sources at once, I probably configured them wrong or something though.

I've had infinitely more luck with the alsa drivers.

What sound card do you have? Some sound cards have trouble mixing sources; also, some older versions of alsa don't have multiplexing support. aRts for KDE and EsounD for Gnome add support for this, however.

Right now I'm using the Alsa drivers and they do have multiplexing support which from what I could tell the nvidia drivers did not. I think I'll stick with these, still not perfect though, but they'll do.
