Default working XFX 7300 GS w/ compiz - not performance I expected

Thought I would post this on one place instead of following up on all of the 7300 threads. I wont go through getting compiz to work, there are enough threads on other more related sites....but it is pretty cool so check it out when you get a chance.

I have an AMD 64 with an XFX 7300 GS that works with the current module. I am currently running this on Ubuntu Dapper 64 for testing.

I will attach all relevant files. although all I had to do was change how the module loaded and change nv to nvidia in the xorg.conf

ewiget@server:~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia
options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
My xorg.conf (I stripped out comments)
ewiget@server:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I haven't really optimized it yet for performance.....other than turnign on the two options in the /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia file. If anyone has any optimization settings, please let me know. For some reason, I am barely getting better performance using glxgears than my old laptop, which is only 16mb go 420

glxgears: (first 3 small window, next 3 full screen)
ewiget@server:~$ glxgears

10212 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2036.284 FPS

2750 frames in 5.9 seconds = 468.547 FPS
1443 frames in 5.3 seconds = 273.938 FPS
