I have gallium working on a different hard drive and the benchmark tool is showing 115 fps but it *feels* much smoother. Obviously I can't do vdpau with nouveau, but I'm seriously impressed given how alpha it is. It's also very nice to have KMS so logout scenarios where the server restarts doesn't leave me with a garbled screen and I can get nice boot splash
