Is there some reason you keep using a fast-changing distribution like fedora? If you don't enjoy the challenge, there are more stable alternatives.

Yes I could stay with F7 or go back to FC4 where I was for quite a few years. But neither of those choices sound good now. I noticed the www.atrpms.net has the nvidia rpm's for F8 already. That is pretty fast.

I meant compared to Centos5 which is essentially a frozen FC6 except for security and bugfix updates with a stable kernel module interface, or some distribution that is less antagonistic to the 3rd party module providers.

I like to keep a copy of fedora around for testing because they push out changes that often end up in other distributions but I wouldn't want to depend on it as my only OS and certainly not on any machine that needs a 3rd party kernel module to be usable. If you haven't noticed, keeping nvidia drivers working is not a priority in fedora.
