1st issue: I can`t help you in this one

2nd issue: type alsamixer in your terminal and see if all the levels are up

3rd issue: no, 2 GB of swap is more than enought

When it comes to compatibility, Nvidia drivers are problably the best.
Mint 64 is not a high consummer for RAM (at least not with me). You problably won`t have any problem with your webcam.
