Ok so I installed x11/nvidia-driver-304 from your packages and problem 
solved with the lag issues.  I have a Nvidia GTS 250 in this system so I 
wouldn't think it were just that old that it wouldn't work with the new 
driver.  I suppose it's possible as it's not the newest anymore that the 
latest driver might not introduce problems as well.  Or it actually is 
something with the newer driver.

At this point since the old driver works might be worth adding something 
like this to the Gnome 3 wiki page for nvidia users as a workaround and 
call it good?

pkg delete -f nvidia-driver-331.20
pkg install nvidia-driver-304-304.88_1
