Default Ubuntu video driver error

hey everyone. I'm a former windows user and I made the switch to Ubuntu. unfortunately, I didn't get very far berfore I hit a small problem; after trying to enable desktop effects and installing the needed nVidia driver, ubuntu looks more like ms-dos than it does win. Vista...

any help would be greatly apreciated.....

Computer settup:

Ubuntu feisty fawn (wubi'd so I still have vista)
AMD X2 4200+
msi k9vgmv mobo (soon to be asus m2n32)
nVidia/gigabyte 8800 GTS
X-Fi sound card
RAZER krait mouse
