Default Linux performance of ut2003 Please Read...

Hey I was just wondering how many FPS you guys get with what vid cards heres my setup

Athlon XP 2200 @ 1.85 ghz
512 Generic DDR
Geforce 2 MX 200 64 SDRAM PCI

Everyone that is using Linux must be using Geforces to get decent frame rates, I get about 25 average in the indoor level, and simply terrible results with the outdoor... If I can improve performance please let me know, or if you have any suggestions for a new video card I will accept that also. I am looking for a minimum of 40 fps in the outdoor level, and whatever geforce you guys think can get me that, please post.

BTW: I run Mandrake 8.2, KDE2, UT2003 under 16 bit color 800x600

P.S. I heard the difference between 16 bit and 32 bit color in UT2003 doesn't make a difference, because the programmers programmed UT2003 to be run in 32, and not the usual 16. Also does res really make a difference with this port? At 640x480 I didn't notice any improvment, nor when I selected 1024x768 did i notice dramatic slowdown on FPS.
