I know that there are some kexts you can install for certain Nvidia Graphics Cards. What all have you tried/done so far?

Are you wanting to go with retail or with a distro?

In my opinion I'd go distro first. Just to make sure you can get everything functioning correctly. Check out my post about installing iaktos on dell Inspiron n7110. It's in the notebooks section. I'd link it but I'm using my phone due to Internet issues. That should help with the installing. It's worked with my dell, msi, and my toshiba laptops. Once you get the feel for things and think you have it all figured out, go buy the retail install. There are people here that have a lot more knowledge than me on these issues/topics. But I will try to help as often and as much as I can.
