Odd problem with nvidia drivers

OK, I just ran into a weird problem with the nvidia drivers. I installed them fine, and then ran into the permissions problem. No big deal, I edited console.perms and chmod'd and chown'd the /dev/nvidia* files. But now, whenever i use the terminal outside of the X server (when i press Ctrl+Alt+F1-6) the text is huge and distorted. However, when i reset the permissions to the way they originally were, the text appears fine, but then I can't play 3d games. Anyone have any input on this?
