GLX != GLCore

Disabling GLX breaks the NVIDIA driver (you won't get the performance 
you should).

If you have a working X config file for a different driver (such as the "nv"
or "vesa" driver), then simply edit the file as follows.

Remove the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")
(or Driver "fbdev")

and replace it with the line:

Driver "nvidia"

Remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLCore"

In the "Module" section of the file, add the line (if it does not already

Load "glx"

If you have to disable GLX, you've probably got an X Windows library 
configuration problem.  See "X starts for me, but OpenGL applications 
terminate immediately" in the README linked above.  If that's not the 
problem, make sure you don't have the Composite extension enabled.
