NVidia config options
Hey, just plugged in a few options i was reading about and they seem to have made quite the difference Thought I would share, in case I am not the last to pursue these options
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
added to the XF86Config-4 file. It seems to speed up menuload times and window refreshes quite a bit. The second option just tells it to use the nvidia_agp instead of agpgart...speeded up glxgrear from 2300 to 3300 fps, I won't complain
Just thought I would share.

what card? what OS?
or does that work with more than one nvidia card?"Even a fool is thought to be wise if he is silent"

That will work with all Nvidia cards (although I think lower than GF2 may have some issues. It is all in the Readme on nvidia's site in the driver install pages).
I am running on a FX5200 on the 2.6.3 kernel (Mandrake 10, using Xfree still). I just had a friend pop it in, and he confirms that it does make a difference, so maybe it isn't my eyes playing tricks on me Not sure about X.org

The renderaccel option really helps when using xorg 6.8.0 and the composite extension.

maybe Im being dense... could you be a little more clear as to how and where you made these changes?
maybe point us to where you found this knowledge?

I think the options were in the readme for the nvidia driver.
You would enter them in your XF86Config/xorg.conf file in the Device Section for your nvidia card.
