new card problems.
I upgraded from a very old amd sempron with 7300 GT card to a intel core 2 duo with geforce 210 card.
old card had 256MB memory. new one has 1024.
nvidia-settings says 1024 but lspci says
lspci -v -s 01:00.0

and I'm experiencing much lower framerate in games.
computer/kde are much faster now.
