Open a terminal and type gksudo nvidia-settings , enter your password, make your changes, use the "Save to X" button . . your done ! :D

NYDAz: I agree. Desktop effects are one of the most useless, resource consuming, time consuming facilities ever to hit the desktop computing world. The way I understand computers, they are primarily designed to enable us to do tasks quicker and easier. Desktop effects slow down your computing simply to provide useless eye-candy. They are like a great-looking dumb blonde - terrific in bed and for the first date, but you can't live with them!
