I gave up on nVidia cards, they always had problems.  Nouveau was never 
reliable for me and running the proprietary kernel modules was a security 
issue and would have restricted my choice of kernel.

The machine I'm using now is a HP ML110 Gen9 and my wife's machine is a Dell 
T320.  Using ECC RAM for everything that's important reduces the strange 
lockup issues.
