I have a nVidia 6600GT myself (PCI-e version from Leadtek) and it works perfect with Breezy.

Have you installed the OpenGL drivers? If not folow the instructions in the following Wiki article: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BinaryDriverHowto/

If you did already install them you might try to run glxgears or some other application that uses OpenGL to see if they work.
