If you are new to linux, I guess you should not be testing Steam :) Sorry to say so, but Steam is not production ready so don't expect miracles. – don.joey Dec 21 '12 at 10:47

Have you tried installing the newest experimental drivers? Perhaps named nvidia-experimental-NNN? I haven't tried this, but I read that it can fix the graphics driver issues with steam.

First go to dash and search Additional Drivers, open it . It will check your system and suggest to install missing drivers. You will get list of different Nvidia drivers , But you have to select only recommanded version.
