* How will that affect on proprietary drivers
I'd like to do a manual install of 310.32, but on Ubuntu and it's derivatives it breaks everything, specially librarires (error message: you do not have the required openGL version) and this only happens on Ubuntu and it's forks.

In one word or less, KABOOM!
The package manager should have 3.5.0-25 available, which is ok to install with proprietary drivers. dkms will look after the update to the drivers for you. Of course you must also install the 3.5.0-25 headers.
Other than that, you're asking for trouble if you're planning to go with kernel 3.7 or 3.8. dkms doesn't support those kernels yet so your proprietary video drivers will break.
