gnome 3 shell

I am using Fedora 14 and recently wanted to see how will it work and look with new gnome 3 shell. I read that gnome shell will be default for Fedora 15. So I installed it and I could say I am not so happy about it. I mean I like gnome shell, and its idea but it is kinda slow and its chopping. So wanted to know what are sys req for gnome shell 3 and will it work better in Fedora 15?

Do you have working 3D graphics drivers installed?

I am using it on F15 with a 1 gig gForce 9600 on one machine and a 1 gig 9500 on another machine and it is rock solid with the Gallium 0.4 on NV96 stock drivers..

I have not had any of the issues you have seen, perhaps it is not designed as well for F14?
