Default Freebsd 6.1 + Nvidia Driver + Via Apollo 133

Hello
I,m using FreeBsd as Desktop for 2 years, recently I upgraded video card to a Gforce MX440 64MB 8x, since my motherboard chipset supports only up to 4x I get this BEFORE running X :

hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.rates: 4x 2x 1x
hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.fw: supported
hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.sba: supported

THEN WITH X RUNNING :

hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.rates: 2x 1x
hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.fw: supported
hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.sba: supported
hw.nvidia.agp.host-bridge.registers: 0x1f000213:0x00000102

dev.nvidia.0.%parent: pci1

How it now reports only 2x?
I also do this:
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.EnableVia4x=1
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.ReqAGPRate=8
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.NvAGP=1
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPSBA=1
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPFW=1
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.FlatPanelMode=0
sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.VideoEnhancement=1


But nothing change, OpneGl Screensavers flicker and performance y very poor

Any Clue?

Thanks In Advance.
