    I have that video card as well. If you want to quickly get your hands on a 3d desktop, just try sabayon linux. Comes with beta version of the new Nvidia driver. The only trick is you have to boot the live cd with the aiglx option to get your 3d desktop. I got tired of it fast, but it is fun to play around with for a little while.
