Personally, i think it may be better to avoid that subject all together, and instead focus on the latest nvidia driver
On my Archlinux system(s) the config you are looking for is here:
..and you would enable that feature by adding this, to your configuration file;
Thanks mate, I added that option to /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf and it worked.Code:options nvidia NVreg_EnablePCIeGen3=1

Although, I did do some interesting findings. I only tested the real-time kernel on one of my rigs, but my interesting finding was the older rig(Phenom II 940, GT 640) running at ~58 fps was perceived way more fluid than the newer rig (3930K, GTX 680 4GB) at ~200 fps. I even tested the older rig with "normal" and rt kernel, and even though the average performance was roughly equal, the normal kernel was "unplayable" compared to the rt kernel. This tells me rt kernels have the potential for a whole new level of gaming.
So to clearify, rt kernel work great except for Vsync. Since I'm working a lot with balancing the workload for achieving the best experience, I would prefer to be able to run with Vsync without the computer becoming unresponsive. In a related note, I also really need to be able to disable Kepler boost, since it's hard to balance the graphics load when the performance of the GPU is slowly declining.
Now only if the Ubuntu drivers update tool would offer anything newer than nvidia-experimental (310 series).

N is a value between 0 and 10 (higher is brighter, default is 10).
(put in /etc/rc.local before the "exit" line to make this automatically happen when booting)
Also, yes, it is possible to play under Linux, that's what I do. I have no console, but I have an i7-2600K and a 570GTX. umad? :-D
