FC 10 Running "Choppy"


ehlo,

I recently installed FC10 64-bit on a AMD s754 1.8Ghz, 1.0gig DDR400, XFX 6600GT 128MB AGP system.
I installed the newest drivers from nVidia - 180.51
However everything seems to be pretty "choppy".
A good example is the main page of Yahoo! to the right with mail, messenger, etc and how it drops down when you mouse over to display more info...there is hesitation and not smooth at all.
I'm running native 1440x900 @ 60 refresh.

I boot this system with Windows 7 /w Aero and it runs no problem...which is making me think I have some sort of problem here since Aero is a hog.

I'm not really sure where to begin..as..I'm pretty nubbish troubleshooting Linux.


edit: changed RAM from 1.5g to 1.0. Forgot i took out 512 last week!

Try playing with the nvidia settings
reduce effects, optimize for performance or overclock a bit
Also edit system-config-services for unused services


If it does not help then
uninstall that

Go to www.rpmfusion.org

Follow instructions

install the nvidia driver with yum or smart package manager
