Default Is this possible?

Is it possible to setup xorg to use the nvidia proprietary driver for 3d only, and the nv driver for 2d only?

The reason I ask is I installed ubuntu (I've tryed 8.10 and 9) on an old computer with a geforce mx 200, and the nv driver has slow 3d, but fast 2d, whereas the nvidia driver has fast 3d but horribly slow 2d. Since having a responsive desktop is my first priority, Im using the nv driver exclusively right now.

Any suggestions?

Alright, that's too bad. Thanks though.

I have one final question then. Anyone have any settings or anything that they could recommend that might speed up the 96 series driver (latest one)?

Speed up what? In most situations drivers already set proper default settings and you can hardly improve anything ... except overclocking
