Default direct rendering with nvidia card

Good morning, I just installed my new desktop pc. Bought a new graphics card along as my old hardware was not compatible. I chose a plain cheap MSI NX8400GS card.

So installed a fresh PCBSD 7, which works just fine, except for the graphics output. When I move a window around at the desktop, it seems to "drag" a lot after the mouse cursor, very bumpy indeed. glxgears works but with an average of 80fpm. this is the ouput of glxinfo:

name of display: :0.0                                                
display: :0  screen: 0                                               
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
server glx vendor string: SGI                                                      
server glx version string: 1.2                                                     
server glx extensions:                                                             
And here comes my xorg.conf:
