You can either type "3" in the text bit at the bottom when you first boot up Suse or log into another terminal "Ctrl-Alt-F1" for example and log in as root and type "init 3"
That will drop you to runlevel 3 ie no X.

Hope that helps.

How many fps do you get when you type gears in a terminal window?

Also post your output of 3Ddiag.

Cheers, Glenn
