Could you guys please inform me how did you install your card? I just did last night under Ubuntu... Removed all the ATi drivers with Envy and Synaptec. Than installed the card and latest beta drivers (they said something about kernel modules and how the driver will "compile" them on its own).
In xorg file it says driver "nvidia" but I have no direct rendering

Should I install some things from Synaptec as well? Or try the older driver there first?

Here is the link to Ubuntu forums post I made:

Thank you for your time!
