Well, sometimes reading the manual (rtfm ;)) really helps!
In /usr/doc/nvidia-glx-[your-version-blah-blah]/README.gz there are some nice driver options listed. You can add a mouse shadow, for example!
How about adding these options to your Device Section in XF86Config?
Code:

    Option      "NvAGP"                 "1"
    Option      "NoLogo"                "1"
    Option      "NoRenderAccel"         "0"
    Option      "PageFlip"              "1"
    Option      "SWCursor"              "0"
    Option      "HWCursor"              "1"
    Option      "CursorShadow"          "1"
    Option      "CursorShadowAlpha"     "64"
    Option      "CursorShadowXOffset"   "4"
    Option      "CursorShadowYOffset"   "2"


Have lots of fun! :)

Cursor shadows only work with >= geforce 2.

pageflipping and hardware cursor are already enabled by default.

"nvagp 1" which forces use of Nvidia's agp driver can cause problems. Nvidia says if you use their agp driver you need to disable agpgart in the kernel. By default agpgart is used if available otherwise it uses Nvidia's which is the safe way to do it.

I know that NvAGP can cause problems but I does not cause problems for me, just played Quake 3 with these settings...

Everybody should read the manual I noted above and see for himself which options to set instead of just using my settings.

Yup, I read the documentation and didn't use everything above. But it was still very helpful information.

Thanks again.
