My advice is to download LiveDVD for testing porposes, but regular DVD 
for installation. That way you will not miss out on anything from 
regular installation (in case LiveDVD is missing anything).

CentOS after installation is exactly what RHEL/upstream distributes, so 
there can/will be missing nVidia/ATI and possibly some other drivers. 
Those can be found in third party repositories 
(http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories) so do not 
worry about it, you will be able to set up your PC with all the drivers, 
with little meddling.
