Default Re: Very low FPS using nVidia Geforce FX Go 5200 using 6111 drivers

The 5200 Go and the 5200 are different video cards with different purposes.. the Go cards are meant for low power consumption and certainly that effects expected performance. I would assume they are clocked at very different speeds as well. You should look for other 5200 Go card user's performance rather than comparing directly to your other machine, even if all else is equal (glxgears is very cpu dependent).

You should check the clock speeds and consider clocking the Go card if its performance is too low, but be careful of course, slow is better than burned up. Install and use nvclock to check the speeds of your cards (and modify if desired).
