Is there any kind of comparison with the open source nvidia drivers in terms of both card and extension support. Is anybody actively working on the open source nvidia drivers?

The open-source Nvidia drivers are 2D only -- no 3D support whatsoever. I think they support all Nvidia cards though, as they have a consistant interface for the 2D stuff.

The http://nouveau.sf.net project is working on free 3D support for Nvidia cards.
