They should work fine with the nVidia binary drivers ( 
http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp ).  As far as picture 
quality, I can't tell you.  I'm using a (much cheaper) Chaintech MX440, 
and it has a great picture--almost as nice as my PVR-350, but much more 
stable, and much better with goom!
