I haven't upgraded my Testing partition in at least two weeks, in

I'm a bit more relaxed as far as my schedule goes so I was thinking of
upgrading to the newest packages. I have heard, however, that in
addition toi the kernel upgrade, there's been a rather buggy upgrade
(stable->testing) of the Xorg Server. Can anybody tell me what am I to
expect *as far as X is concerned if I am to upgrade? I've downloaded
the latest x86 Linux driver for my Nvidia GT220 gpu from here :
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_190.53.html . Will a
simple re-installation of the drivers after the kernel and Xorg
upgrade suffice, or should Nvidia users refrain from upgrading at this

I have a 260GTX on the newest nVidia drivers with the newest testing kernel and Xorg, worked fine for me, just needed new kernel headers after the kernel upgrade before i reran the nVidia installer.
I use the nVidia installer btw due to the 19x.xxx drivers not being*available*in testing and I dont feel like mixing in sid.
I realise its not the same gpu but as they both use the same closed source driver.
