bitcoin miner compatible with nvidia - Ask Ubuntu

Anyone using linux to mine bitcoin?

My setup is an AMD PhenomII 965 black edition with 12gb DDR3 1333 and an Nvidia GTX460 1gb graphics card. I run Ubuntu 12.04
My roommate's setup is an AMD PhenomII 945 Black edition with 4gb DDR2 800 and an Nvidia GTX 460 1gb graphics card. He runs Windows 7
Using DiabloMiner on my Ubuntu 12.04 setup, I get around 50 Mhash and my computer becomes unusable during this time.
When my roommate uses GUIminer on his Windows 7 setup, he gets around 70 Mhash and can still browse the web and do other non-graphics intensive tasks.
Is this simply a limitation of Nvidia drivers on Linux, or is there something I'm missing? Any advice from other Linux using bitcoin miners out there would be of great help.
EDIT:

I am aware that AMD is better than Nvidia for mining BTC. My question was whether or not my setup was being limited by some combination of my OS/Drivers/Mining Tool. I am also welcoming any advice that isn't buy an AMD card, for improving my current setup.
