Poor Graphic performance under Linux Ubuntu 8800GTX
to put it simple I'm a new Linux (ubuntu 7.10) user and have a problem with graphic performance. This aspecially occures when I'm running World Of Warcraft under CrossOver. I put in a Support form (thinking the problem was their) but this is what they replyed me. can anyone either confirm or deny this or even better tell me what to do to get it all running the correct way.
