I was trying the nivdia drivers on 7.0 current and having all sort of 
problems as well, including panics.
One thing I did find was to disable acpi and things ran much more 
smooth, no more panics, but occasionally still had other display 
problems, and every so often trying to start X stated the nvidia drivers 
could not be found.

Moved back to the nv drivers and all is fine again.
