small tip to make gnome more enjoyable on amd64 systems running with nv driver (sacrificing some animations, etc)

set metacity reduced_resources to true

from command line:

Code:
gconftool-2 --set "/schemas/apps/metacity/general/reduced_resources" --type bool "true"
optionally, remove wireframe:

Code:
gconftool-2 --set "/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility" --type bool "true"
you can also find these keys in menu Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor;
{ schemas/apps/metacity/general & desktop/gnome/interface/ }

set to false to undo

Using the following options in Device section with 8xxx cards and higher could improve performance too.

Section "Device"
<...>
Driver "nv"
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
<...>
EndSection
