Not everything... not quite.

The vsync option for OpenGL acceleration is something like:

__GL__VSYNC_TO_VBLANK (not sure here, check the release notes).

but you must set this option with the 'export' command from a console:

export __GL__VSYNC_TO_VBLANK=0

Then launch you fav game from the same terminal.

Now, this sounds strange to me since the drivers set vsync off by default. Perhaps you are running a Quake3 based game and you're getting 60 fps (or your current monitor's refresh rate)

Those games cap automatically their fps from their config file (something.cfg).

You should edit that file and set their maxfps to 500 or whatever.

Edit: the export bit is not explained in nVidia's release notes.
Use the source, Tux.
