    Code:
    cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
    also, by 'direct enabled' do you mean DRI? you don't need that on.

    check glx is enabled in your xorg.conf, and also 'nvidia' driver is used not 'nv'

    Code:
    tordek@morgan:~$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
    Status:          Enabled
    Driver:          AGPGART
    AGP Rate:        4x
    Fast Writes:     Disabled
    SBA:             Disabled
    and no, I mean that when I do
    Code:
    glxinfo|grep render
    it informs me that direct rendering is enabled, and that the renderer is, in fact, my board
    ==EDIT==
    Disabling composite speeds glxgears from 120 to 300, noticeable, but still meaningless; I remember once (some time ago, and not necessarily on slack) getting around the 2000 or 3000
