AFAIR, F7 will EOL in a ~month.
F8 will be supported till Dec/08.

If you rather have long term support for your users (reducing the
noise), you should really consider switching to RHEL/CentOS.

Most certainly so.

Beyond that, I'd venture and guess that nVidia will release an
unofficial X-server 1.4.999-compatible beta driver ASAP.
