Nvidia Driver for OpenGL game

view full story

http://crunchbang.org – The kernel is probably not very important for OpenGL speed as long the driver you use supports it.For hardware acceleration of any kind nouveau is the slower (possibly much slower) choice.The nvidia proprietary drivers will give you much faster OpenGL speed than noveau.Their recent drivers have had (according to them) major improvements to OpenGL speed in response to Steam for Linux.The 200 series cards are supported by those drivers (I have a GT 240 in my server) and you can install them with smxi or sgfxi.
