Default Crap Graphics

Hi,
I have the new 5328 drivers installed & working, I think.. but still seem to be getting crap graphics in my games..

I have GF4 Ti4200 128Mb

<**on edit**>
would this make a difference?
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/card
status: disabled:

If so how to I switch it on?

25884 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5176.800 FPS
25764 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5152.800 FPS
25719 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5143.800 FPS
22296 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4459.200 FPS
