Nvidia Vs. Nouveau

Hey i have to run the nvidia driver from rpmfusion to get my hdmi working properly. But somehow the nvidia driver has a worse performance than the nouveau. With the nouveau i can run every stupid effect kwin offers without any hassle. With the nvidia driver even moving windows feels slow for the first 5 seconds (no tranparency or anything else enabled). Sounds stupid but it feels like the driver is sleeping then after 5 seconds gets his coffee and does the job properly. This thing happens with every effect kwin offers again and again. I am running the akmod-driver on my nvidia 9200M with the PAE-Kernel (installed kernel-PAE-devel like discribed somewhere). I am thankful for any suggestion.

greets frongo
