The nvidia card I know that it will only work with the nv driver out
of the box, i.e. so so 2D performance and no 3D, if you want better
performance and don't mind using a proprietary driver, check the
vendor's website. The broadcom I don't know and you don't provide
model numbers so it would be harder to find.
Your best bet: get yourself a live CD. If it doesn't work, file
bugs. It's not so hard to do this by yourself.
