Default Re: Nvidia 9600GT: Xorg process and high CPU usage

[quote=jonb87;2490263]I have tried bundles of these sorts of these suggestions. All to no avail.

Yeah, I updated my post to reflect that while it helped a bit, my problem still remains.

The more concurrent things I have running, the worse it gets.
And ooimpress (when opening a 100 page document) starts up, opens a file, shows me the first page, and then CRASHES every time. Reproducible! Most other GTK+ apps such as thunderbird and firefox also perform badly.

It *seems* as if it is no longer using the video card memory, but just swapping in and out of main memory. It reminds me of how my computer used to behave when I used the on-board video card instead of the external card. But worse.
