Default FC2 AMD64 x86_64 6800GT freeze very slow


Last week I got a new PC:
mb asus a8v deluxe
cpu AMD athlon 64 3500+
mem 2GB DDR pc3200
vga Aopen 6800 GT 256 MB
disk 3ware 9500 SATA 2x200GB raid 1

and installed FC2 x86_64 on it. Then I downloaded the latest kernel / updates / bios / firmware / ...
kernel = 2.6.8-1.521
nvidia driver = 1.0-6111

After adjusting the xorg.conf file and starting X with the nvidia drivers, all seems fine. glxgears gives a 12,000 fps. But after a certain amount of time (30 secs - several minutes) my X session freezes. It appears frozen, but it get still refresfed very slowly (1 frame / 5 secs according to my opinion). Machine is still running and I can safely reboot via network login or via power button.
I 've already tried the NVagp option, but problem stays. Also tried older nvidia drivers, but no luck either. There are no errors in /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

The vga card works (almost) fine under Win XP 32 (haven't tried XP 64). When I say almost: sometimes slow video playback.

Anyone has the same probs? Any suggestions? Any help?
