Default Poor desktop performance with Riva TNT2 and legacy driver

Hi,
i have an old AMD Duron 1300 with 512Meg Ram and Riva TNT2 (Elsa Erazor 3) running Xubuntu 8.04 and Nvidia legacy driver. I know it's not the fastest PC, but it's fast enough to use. But he would be more usefull if the 2d performance would be better.

gtkperf gives these results

The PixmapPlacement with nvidia-settings doesnt work. Any idea what I can do? Or is this a result of the old hardware?
