I really doubt it is a hardware problem because:

2) I have no problems at all under Windows 7 with nVidia drivers.

So, Linux nVidia driver is probably the culprit.

There seems to be a known issue with fermi cards

The nouveau driver wouldn't suffer from this as it hasn't got any power saving capability as far as I know.
