I have an ATI Radeon 9200 and I am running the standard Xorg driver on FC2. My FPS was around 450 with the cog's turning very very slowly. If I put a terminal window over the glxgears windows then it shot up to 4500 FPS. Not that that helps much. :-) I put in the setting you suggested and bingo, my FPS is now at 650. The desktop also got a lot quicker, especially switching between virtual desktops. -- They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards you hear satanic messages.
