>From what I recollect, installing mesa-libGL overrides the NV hardware

The mesa rpm installs it's own libGL, so re-install your nVidia rpm to
re-connect libGL to the nVidia supplied libs that reference your
hardware instead of software. Huge difference! 

You may have to add the --force command to rpm -i when you do this
re-install of the nVidia driver package.
