After some fiddling, I have all my hardware working with the Lion GM. For my graphics card (Nvidia GTX 460 SE) I have not installed any official Nvidia drivers like I used to for Snow Leopard. Whatever drivers came with Lion seem to offer good performance, but I still experience the terrible Fermi Freeze, rendering my system unreliable and untrustworthy.

Is it worth it to try downloading the official Nvidia drivers that didn't help on Snow Leopard? Or am I out of luck?

Nvidia have not released any stand-alone drivers for Lion yet.

Strange that your getting the Fermi Freeze syndrome with Lion. My 460 has been rock solid since DP1 (though the dock had strange graphical glitches in it until DP4). Is your card BIOS over, over clocked (more than what it was by the OEM?).
