The haswell cpu and graphics hardware is quite well supported, and as long as
you don't want to suspend or hibernate, power management is decent as well.

There certainly is no real support for NVIDIA graphics devices, and I do not
know how our setup fares with dual graphics adapters. There's really only one
way to find out: Try.

But as I said, if you want to actually use the nivida, you'll have to find
someone who ports the whole nvidia driver infrastructure to dfly.
