look at the PRs concerning nve driver and nVidia4.
Its very likely that it doesn't run.
If your board has a 2nd chip on board i.e. via re driver
then you can use at least this one.
-current driver and never linux drivers from nVidia 
also doesn't solve the problems with the guy I know
with his nVidia4 based board.

Concerning sound on mainboard. The external speakers mini plugs
that connect to the plug on the mainboard (case) sometimes don't
find good contact. I would recommend a PCI based sound card.

You could run i386 on amd64 as I do at the moment to be able to use
all ports in the ports collection. Some stuff still only runs on i386.
