Oh the nvclock does work for the 8800GT512? sweet I will try to build that next time i'm on.
As for compiz, I don't know the specifics of your PC devrandom, but for me it ran MUCH smoother than .04.. though maybe not exactly as smooth as 100.14. I didn't benchmark the performance but there was no serious hiccups when maximizing windows, tabbing or anything else. I was also able to play a long game of TF2 (running in wine) with no serious performance issue, only a minor annoyance of the taskbar showing overtop of the game.
Perhaps this comes down to specific software that differs on our machines, because I'm also using the 8800 GT 512mb.
hardware: Core Duo @ 2.65ghz, 3gigs of ram, gigabyte 650i
software: kernel 2.6.22, Gentoo 64bit, Xorg-server 126.96.36.199, xorg 7.1 (i think?), compiz 0.6.2, compiz-fusion 0.6.0, gnome 2.18
Ran compiz from console with "compiz-start"
