Default Re: AIGLX and CPU consumption

Being a sceptic and having experience with running computers with flaky graphic cards I haven't tried out 3D-accelerated desktops yet, but you should probably start by reading HOWTO: Compiz with NVIDIA Graphics Drivers. There's probably also a section about the same subject in the readme that came with your nvidia-drivers. (Installed in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx/README.txt.gz for me, but probably different places in other distros)
Computer stuff I've owned at one time or another:
CPUs: K6-3 400, Duron 600, Thunderbird 1400, Barton 2500, Duron 1800, A-64 3700+, C2D E7200
Motherboards: Shuttle Via MVP, Asus A7V, Asus A7V133, Asus N8X-VM400, Abit NF7, Abit UL8, Asus P5Q Pro
Graphics Cards: TNT2, GF 2 MX, GF 2 Pro, GF4 MX, GF FX 5500, GF 6600, GF 7600 GT, GF 9800GT
