I'm not on here often, but I would recommend downloading the latest linux drivers from nvidia, and installing them, unless you are already doing that.
If you are installing the drivers via the distro's Hardware assistant, or package manager, they are usually older versions.

fluxbox is always a good choice though.
Depending on the distro, you have group install and group remove options. If you were to group remove gnome, It would remove gnome, and most of it's dependancies (Unless they are required by another window manager).
sudo yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Setting up Group Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.atlanticmetro.net
* extras: mirror.atlanticmetro.net
* updates: mirror.nexcess.net
GNOME Desktop Environment
sudo yum groupremove GNOME Desktop Environment
And I believe for Debian/Ubuntu they are listed as general packages, so it would be:
apt-get remove gnome
