I'm not too sure if it'll work with your mashine, but the best way to find out is to boot into the LiveCD.

some cards may need the binary nvidia driver in order to work: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia

You may be able to find support for non-working bits and pieces in the IRC channels :), but I've had very few problems with my desktop computer.
