Question tripple monitor setup

Hi,

I have a tripple monitor setup up and running with two nvidia cards (geforce2 agp dual head / geforce2 pci single head)
X runnes fine but I am not to happy with the performance, if have to use xinerama and that really slows thing down.

Does anyone know a way to enable glx on all monitors (not just the main screen) and how to improve performance with xinerama

thanks by forehand
