Re: 6600GT Terrible 2D performance
You sure that's not KDE. I hate both KDE and Gnome 'cause they are so slow and use all kinds of system resources to no apparent end.
My GT6600 is just peachy in 2D and 3D but I use fluxbox which just runs X and gets out of the way. Rxvt does everything Konsole does but instantly with very little overhead.
