I'm currently using an nVidia FX 5600 card on my workstation running CentOS 4.4.  I used the XORG nv driver for a while with good, 
stable results, but switched to the nVidia-provided driver for better 3D performance.  Gotta be able to play Quake 4, don't you know!

For anything that does not require 3D, tho, the nv driver seems to work just fine.
