It might be just me, but I always had problems mixing PlanetCCRMA and 
ATRPMs. So, I've stayed away from ATRPMs for my Planet-based PCs.

For nvidia, I just obtained the source from nvidia site and built. They 
have an easy was to do this and I just followed the directions. Some 
people have had problems, but I haven't.
