There are open source drivers for nVidia cards, the nv driver included with XFree/XOrg. What do you mean by "your kernel will not be supported if you use Nvidia drivers", supported by whom? Your distro supplier? Most of them provide nVidia driver packages in their full distros.

Nvidia has such good Linux support that there are drivers for Suse 10 on their website!
