The NV driver can be made to work using the tiny patch AaronP committed to the Xorg tree recently. It's single-head only and I've found it to be ridiculously slow compared to the binary driver. I'm not 100% sure why that is, but it's nearly intolerable. I have to agree with many of the others on here- very tempting to either return the 8800GT or to just buy ATI next time.
