hmm, I can't replicate it. Is it because I'm using kwin gles?

304.32 fixed the blue tint.
Problem is 304.32 resulted in <20fps for HoN while 302.17 is ~= 40fps
304 has (or had if 304.37 is good) some nasty performance regressions.
I really wanted to try fxaa since it should give a nice performance boost when aa is use
You're using gles with the NVidia driver?

I can't seem to enable FXAA with the 304.37 driver & 304.37 nv-settings
was able to with 304.32 ... gets in some silly pseudo-radiobutton mode...
--edit-- ahh I see now, and the fact the behaviour now kinda makes sense explains why it might have had issues last time
still trash... 20fps...
well it crashed to 4fps but it seems fxaa overriding apps isn't like in windows, you actually have to disable aa in the application as well.
upto 30fps, need to see how stable it is, msaa would result in 40fps crashing to 20 in a big fight

You are not alone. I tried tonight on the GTX-580/GT-520 and the GTX-275 systems and vdpau playback (smplayer2) with kwin effects on works fine with zero slowdown or tearing (media framerates of 59.94/29.97/24/23.97 tried) using the openGL backend. (Unlike the intel graphics system in the i3).

The best workaround is just to disable composition for video playback there is an option which turn off composition on fullscreen.
But I'm using just the "alt+shift+F12" shortcut if I play a video. It's kind of annoying if you don't watch a fullscreen video and have to disable composition...
That's just a shader applied over, why would you bother since you have *real* AA already? just use it without any AA or not

Regarding X stability: it's the same as on W7, as in, it's as rock solid as the apps you use, I'm not sure a WDM driver restart is such a fun thing to have in the end.
You're taking this the wrong way. This is just so people who don't know what they're doing and want their graphics to work, having followed umpteen internet tutorials and installed both drivers, get the better working ones of the bunch instead of having nouveau interfere. It's also an option that's not on by default, so something suggests to me that someone else will be turning it on.
