    First of all KDE != Gnome and second did you even install the Nvidia drivers ?

    You need to install the nvidia drivers for your card from the vendors page (nvidia) first. I assume the drivers used are the nouveau, and they have many issues with nvidia and ati cards..So, please, try to install the drivers first and then see if problem continues.
    Best of lucks.
