Default Re: Performance of my shiny new 7800GS a bit disapointing

I don't think it's that there are a lot of background processes running, and ps aux doesn't really show anything unexpected. Also when I run top, no process is taking more than 1% of the CPU.

Dapper is prerelease, yeah (although you don't really hear the word "beta" in Ubuntuland much). It carries Xorg 7, which is pretty new.

Installing a different distro isn't really an option at this point. I use this computer for too much work-related stuff to have the downtime. Also, I really like Ubuntu. Dapper carries quite a few new packages that I really need for work that aren't being backported to Breezy.
