So i just installed ubuntu and now I'm updating my video drivers.
I am present with the following choices.
Which one should i pick. And if possible, why? Are there some advantages over the other?

Perfectly good question.
You can take a look at this site for detailed explanation and benchmarks:
But to put it in simple terms, if you intend to play new generation video games on your system, or do any kind of work that puts heavy load on the graphics card, you should use the proprietary nvidia drivers.
Otherwise, you are perfectly fine with the open source nouveau drivers.
