Hmm, strange... I don't have any _laggy_ problems with the 2D-Performance of my two GF8 (8800 GTS, 8600M GT) at all...
Ok, I've to admit that these chips aren't cheap.
but maybe you can try this _old_ trick here
for some extra 2D FPS!!
[aka... replace X.org's original libwfb.so with libnvidia-wfb.so and restart X]
If you have done everything right, something like this
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules//libwfb.so
(II) Module wfb: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 220.127.116.11, module version = 1.0.0
should pop up in Xorg's log file.
