    Then I edit the XF86Config file using vi editor to change the line ‘device = nv’ to ‘device = nvidia’
    Then at the prompt I type sax2 –m 0=nvidia
    I didn't even do the second part about the XF86 config file, and i jus run glxgears and got average of 6000fps on a GeForce MX440 64Mb ram

    hey blue fusion what the specs of your system and what games (emulated, and not emulated) do u play, i've been looking for a graphics card that suites me for what i need and for what i can tell you get good fps in games? thanx
    P4 @ 1.7GHz
    512MB PC800 RAM
    60GB HDD (half winxp, half Mandrake 9.2)
    Asylum NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 Ultra 128MB AGP
    Everything except graphics card is stock Dell 8100.

    I pretty much just play America's Army on here for now. I get about 30-50fps (which isn't bad at all) in normal matches, but when I run my own server, i barely get 20fps. I have got to build me a new one PC!

    Really Perhaps I should try changing it back to 'nv' and see what happens. I'll let you know

    Asus P4P800 - 3Ghz Hyper
    Asus V9950 / 256MB with small FX5900 and a humongous cooler on it.
    1G Dual Burts memory
