Default Re: Poor Performance Geforce 7900GS Go Under Ubuntu.

I managed to fix the problem of not being able to even boot using my nvidia drivers by uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling the kernel restricted modules.

My glxinfo with GLXGears FPS output, lspci and cat /proc/cpuinfo is as follows:

I have tried booting with pci=noacpi and it had no effect whatsoever. I would like to reiterate that I run everything in Windows beautifully, so this is not a hardware related issue. For example, I take around a 70 FPS hit just by running WoW in Wine or Cedega.
