    What about support at least with X server restart? (Like in Catalyst.)

    Yep, I mean nVidia only. Or, fusion APU (A series, without hybrid AMD+AMD). But the safest bet is to get all intel for open source + performance.

    Agree.. But If you want to buy core i3 IVB, it's not yet available. My take is about a half year from now. Too long a wait. Except price is not important for you, then you can get IVB i7, now (but much tandem it with nVidia, unfortunately).
