   Not quite true, an hasn't been for several years. What you don't 
have with 'nv' is direct rendering (DRI). Needed for 3d/accel games. 
Prior to SGI's contributions a few years ago, 'glxgears' wouldn't 
even run at all.
  (from glxinfo)
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2

   GeF4, nv driver, Athlon XP 3200+/400.. 380 / 390fps on the small 
default window, but when run full screen, 1280x1024-24 it drops to 
27 / 30fps.
