Default 6800GT runs slower than 5 year old AGP card

I've just put together a new PC with an ASUS M2N-SLI motherboard, 4gb ram and a pair of 6800GT video cards.

I'm a developer, not a gamer, and the reason I've gone for this option is to have 3 monitors running at the same time. I'm not looking for massive graphic speed but with this setup I can see windows being redrawn and the whole graphic experience feels slower than my old machine which had a 5 year old AGP card.

I'm running Arch linux, I've installed the the 177.67 beta drivers from nvidia. I use fluxbox. I've tried with the SLI cable attached and removed but I've been told that the cable only affects things if SLI is turned on by X (which it isn't as far as I know) so this shouldn't matter. I've also done all the tweaks suggested in the sticky on this forum.

I have a feeling that my problem is just a simple setting in my xorg.conf but don't know where to start to debug things.

I know glxgears isn't benchmark software but example results are:
Code:
7752 frames in 5.1 seconds = 1525.087 FPS
6531 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1299.487 FPS
6365 frames in 5.1 seconds = 1251.892 FPS
6344 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1260.444 FPS
5522 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1104.371 FPS
Comparing these to results from others with the same card they seem to be about 10 times slower.

What can I do?

What can I do?
I think you have no 3D acceleration. Did you install the driver for this card? What tells you glxgears and glxinfo?

As I said in my original message, I've installed the the 177.67 beta drivers from nvidia.

I'm not doing any 3D stuff in normal use, all I'm running is fluxbox, firefox and a few xterms. Even with just that it is noticeable slow.

I thought I'd got the latest version when I downloaded it all last night. I'll have another look.

I havne't tried your xorg yet, waiting for a time when I can afford to restart X - work always gets in the way of fun!

Apparently you have an 8600 though, not 6800:

GL_RENDERER = GeForce 8600 GT/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!

Thats embarasing! I took them out of the box and stuck them in then binned the boxes. I knew I knew nothing about graphics!

Does this affect anything?

8600GT should be as fast as 6800GT.

Yes but it also means you have to follow up on the 8xxx/9xxx performance issues
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=115916
and possibly use the latest beta drivers plus the perfomance tuning tricks described in the stickies.

??? Who said that?

In my own experience, an 8600GT is about 30% LESS performance than a 7600GT and probably 20% less performance than a 6600GT. The 8600GT is a dog. Nvidia really blew it with that card.

But it still shouldn't take a second to redraw the screen after coming out of the screensaver!
