Not sure if this is typical on Linux, fighting this for a few days and any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

No performance problems here with a 7600GT / 9746 / FC6. It's certainly not normal to have a lot of cpu usage when scrolling, but i think you should look into firefox instead of the nvidia driver, since firefox doesnt render directly to hardware (like opengl apps), so it doesnt use any nvidia features directly. You could try if disabling smooth scrolling helps anything.
