Display issues with Nvidia


I have a major issue with screen rendering, when showing some window that has multiple tabs like firefox or settings of something the view gets stuck and doesn't refresh the current display so unless i move my mouse over it or move the window or something it doesn't show the current view, sometimes even when scrolling.

I'm Running Xfce with Compiz but i think the issue is with the drivers, i have a gtx570 card and when i disabled the nvidia drivers and installed the Nouveau driver i didn't have these issues so something in the nvidia drivers is causing that.

Any ideas?

Well, why not stick with the nouveau drivers then?

Thanks For all the help! Managed to solve the issue by using Compiz Workarounds.
