I have had success with the nv driver that comes with xorg and nVidia cards. On my machine there is little difference with glxgears between the nv driver and the nVidia module from lvina.
I don't have a recommendation for you for open source drivers. I would recommend nVIDIA with proprietary drivers (livna if using FC5). I find the xorg drivers terrible with FC5. Might have to do with the new version of Xorg. 3D and 2D desktop rendering performance increases are insane (maybe not insane, but still blow em out of the water) compared to the Xorg driver.
