About a) do you mean the open source drivers you get out of the box, or the "restricted drivers" you explicitly need to ask ubuntu to install?

When it comes to gaming, the closed source drivers leave Nouveau (open source) dead in the water. It's not even a competition. For paraview the same should hold if your graphics card is the limiting factor for performance.

Hey,...

thanks for the link.
As I can see I should use the driver shared by nvidia.
