Yes, I'm using the newest drivers (but I don't see any difference in 2D performance with older drivers). Some people reported performance problems with 6xxx cards on this forum too.

EDIT:

Sorry, I didn't tried beta driver yet.

Try the beta ones. The beta ones really improved stuff. Not totally fixed, but better than nothing. Also remember to put PixmapCacheSize 300000 in your xorg.conf devices section and run the little script I made to set initialpixmap placement and whatever.

Umm, I wouldn't be "whining" if I got my card for free. But I put down $200, so I have every right to complain. I was effectively scammed, along with the hundreds of thousands of other Linux nvidia users.

==========
I have two current nVidia machines (bought specifically after the horrible experience from Ati):

1. Core2Duo laptop w/ 8600M GT
- Debian Sid, with all the updates, including nvidia-drivers 173.14.09.
- KDE 3.5.9, Firefox 3.0
- compiz
=> things run ok, although some actions like maximizing a window are painfully slow, scrolling on the other hand could be better but is quite decent. The latest drivers seem slower than the 171 version, which had other problems. All-in-all, the desktop is usable but feels a lot slower than it should be (especialliy mini/maximizing).

2. Core2Quad desktop with a GTX 260
- Ubuntu 8.10 II, with all the updates, including nvidia-driver 177.latest
- KDE 4.1rc1, Firefox 3.0
- compiz
=> everything is silky smooth, much better than on the laptop, including compiz effects, maximizing, scrolling, etc. I have them side-by-side so I can compare. Maybe the latest drivers are better or is it because of the faster chip? Anyway, it seems not *all* KDE4/FF3 & nVidia combos are bad, in my case it's only the older versions having problems.
============

So basically it seems that a GTX260 with 177.x is not affected, running KDE4 and FF3 quite nicely. Anyone can confirm this?

Regards,
Mihnea

right...
Somehow I don't find it surprising nș2 is silky smooth on a beast like that...shame the rest of us don't have a computer like that . How about the window resizing in kde4, tearing off menus, folderview/plasma manipulations...are those fast too?

I ask this because scrolling is perfectly fine for me too...It's just everything else is sucky

For sure... but... but... is it really possible that a video card shipped in april 2007 (GeForce 8600) isn't enough for resizing a window?

It's possible when the nvidia devs are incompetent and nvidia is too retarded to release their drivers open source and let the experts take care of it.

I'm affected by this nasty bug as well, and I'm starting to regret not to have taken an Intel integrated card for my Dell XPS M1330...
As I don't really need 3D (didn't like Compiz and such), I reverted to the plain old 'vesa' drivers, with amazing results.
Nvidia please fix this!!!!!
Bye
