Use OpenGl Vertex buffer option to enable acceleration.
Right, need to look up that one! Didn't know about it.
For informational purposes; I have been running Ubuntu 14.04 and now 16.04 on:
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz (4 core, HT)
- Motherboard; ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO, BIOS 1603 08/15/2014
- 32GB 1600MHz RAM
- Asus built nVidia (GK110) GeForce GTX 780 Direct CU, 3GB
- 2x Asus 27" screens, one suitable for image editing, the other more "Desktop" and plain reading.
- Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB (for / - less than 12GB used )
- Seagate ST8000VN0022-2EL112 (8TB HDD, e.g. /Data)
- WDC WD30EFRX-68EUZN0 (3TB, /home)
- I have three more 3TB WDC's, but they're "retired" due to being "small".
and among other things FreeCAD... with close to zero problems.

To fix it I reverted to an earlier kernel and reinstalled the NVidia drivers; that seemed to fix the problem.
The proprietary nVidia 384.130 drivers as provided via "Additional drivers" in Software & Updates has been dead stable for long now.
Before I just did ... --uninstall and the an immediate --install from the recovery console... and then removed the old kernel assuming it as "nonfunctional" at that stage. Occasional X updates required the same.
Occasionally I see the 32GB of RAM as essential, especially when handling large 3D-printing models (Some STL files take ages to import and change!).
The GTX 780 runs warm when I do RAW Raster Image Processing in Darktable (some ops runs some 10x faster), but not much otherwise.
I believe the 1060 is about three or four times faster than the 780, not yet worth the upgrade
IMO, mostly due to my low utilization.
