glxgears is a very bad benchmark, so the framerate one can get with it
is irrelevant [1]. I have ~3800 fps with it on my Quadro 14OM, yet games
work perfectly fine and it can decode full HD videos thanks to VDPAU.

Patrick, concerning your driver problem, you may want to have a look at
this: http://bugs.gentoo.org/301318
They have a patch (from the nvnews.net forum) which allows the 190.53
driver to be compiled against a 2.6.33 kernel.
