Does "glxinfo | grep rendering" say "direct rendering: Yes"?

I don't use the repo'd nVidia drivers.  I get mine directly from
nvidia.com and I did have a case once where I had to run their installer
twice in a row to get direct rendering Yes.

Also, check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to make sure you see lines similar
to ...

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
        compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
        Module class: X.Org Server Extension
(II) NVIDIA GLX Module  173.14.05  Mon May 19 00:30:52 PDT 2008
(II) Loading extension GLX
