NVIDIA and 3D - Runs perfectly as root, horrible as normal user, HELP ME!?!
 
I have the following problem:

When I play 3d games as a root they run perfectly (UT2004 -> 100 FPS, all details high)
Then, when I play them as a normal user it runs HORRIBLE (UT2004 -> 4 FPS, all details low)

What can/could be wrong?

any error messages from the terminal after launching a game?

Code:

linux:~ # ut2004
WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
Xlib:  extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".

It says this as a root AND as a normal user

don't think thats it, since it says when you're root too. anything in dmesg?

I've found the problem...
As a normal user a Distributed Computing program was running which would take all my resources (processor power it taken -> cpu 100%) and it doesn't seem seem to give it back when I start a game :(

Well, I guess I should just close it when I want to game...
