Dont use the drivers in the Restricted Repo. Ive noticed considerable difference in performance when I manually installed the Nvidia 180.51 driver from Nvidias website. Download the driver.. ctrl + alt + F# to get to a virtual console.. from there type:
sudo /etc/init.d/DESKTOPMANAGER stop.. so if your gnome it woud be:
sudo /etc/initl.d/gdm stop.
after that cd to where the driver file was downloaded to and type sudo sh FILENAME.
Follow the instructions.. let it build its own kernel module and make sure you let it run nvidia-xconfig.. then when your dropped back to the console type:
sudo /etc/init.d/DESKTOPMANAGER start.
