If your video card is not supported by the latest nVidia proprietary driver and the generic nVidia driver doesn't support all of the features and/or speed you wanted to get from the card, you are stuck with Windows until enough information is available from nVidia to support the card.

Many peripherals on the 'bleeding edge' of technology don't get the support for GNU/Linux from the manufacturers that Windows and OS X get, because we are perceived as a 'niche' market without many dollars to be gained from giving the support.
