Well I switched from ATi to Nvidia. I installed an FX5700.
Driver install (6111) went well. nv_check.sh says there are no conflicting files. Quake 3 runs great.
UT2K4 however, is now very choppy. The sound goes out, and the game stutters. It was fine before with my Radeon 9800 Pro. I am using very conservative settings here and have a 3.0Ghz P4 and 1Gb of PC3200. I know the game should perform worse with this card, but not this poorly.
I think somehting is wrong.
First of all, is it normal for the image below to say "Bus Type: PCI" for an AGP card?
Next, do the Nvidia drivers have serious problems running games in Linux if a second monitor is enabled? Is there an easy way to disable a monitor? (without editing xorg.conf)
I dont know... I just expected more of a change in desktop rendering from what was told to me about the Nvidia drivers.
Here is my xorg.conf.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
