    Try to use:

    Code:
    sudo nvidia-settings
    or

    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Make sure you've got the nvidia driver installed.
    Go System > Administration > Hardware Drivers. And make sure it's installed and running. If it isn't, check the box and it will have you reboot. It normally autodetects at this point and adjusts itself. If it doesn't I suggest installing the nvidia x server settings manager. You can make all your adjustments through that.
