I, too, can't upgrade to the newer xorg-server; due to a known bug, the
nvidia-driver 290 doesn't recognise my 7600 Go, so I have to stick with 279
for the time being.
You could try nouveau. The setup isn't really difficult, you get better 2D
performance, adequate 3D performance, plus KMS support (which means high TTY
resolution without (u)vesafb, and thus no more problems when switching between
X and TTY). I would like to use it more often, if it wouldn't leave me with a
black screen after waking up from standby.
