It should and it does: that's almost exactly the same setup I have on my
desktop box (albeit the nvidia card is setup as the boot device).
The Geforce GT 330M is apparently a mobile device.

GPUs are not independent but use something marketed as "optimus technology"
which is currently unsupported by the DragonFly graphics stack.
