This is in 24Bit depth nearly normally for your card. In 16Bit not. I was also shocked, when I put in my new FX5700 after long using my fast Ti4200 with higher scores up2 ~6500 FPS and now ~4400 FPS.

I dont know if Debian use TLS/NPTL, now. Too long not more using Debian... But the nVidia installer should see if your Debian glibc use it or not. And I can remind me that the tls libs from XFree86 for the DRI in /usr/X11R6/lib/ was here a bad choice with the ready nV binary driver and the tls libgl* in /usr/lib/tls/* are from nVidia.
Maybe putting /usr/lib/tls in /etc/ (ldconfig after) helps you.

And if you want a better performance for the desktop or gaming, you should install an actual 2.6.5 kernel from:

Fedora Core 6
Notebook: DELL Inspiron 9400 - Core Duo T2400 - 17" WUXGA 7800 Go 256MB - 2 GB DDR2 667 MHz -
PC: AMD64 3200 - 1 GB Infi. PC400 - MSI K8N Neo Platinum NForce3 250GB - 80GB SATA Samsung - SB Live! 5.1 - GF 6600GT AGP
