Exclamation FPS Dropped Horribly On GeForce FX 5200 Using FC2


Hi, im pretty new to linux although i can use it pretty well, i've been using it for about a month. Alrighty hears my problem, i hope you guys can help me fix it. I installed the nVidia drivers correctly, changed the xorg.conf file correctly and rebooted my comp and loaded FC2 and the nvidia logo came up and all was fine, i check glxgears in konsole and my fps was in the thousands so all was fine until a couple of days later. I checked my glxgears cause Tux Racer was running real bad, choppy graphics and all. And guess what i got for FPS....I went from 1200+ to Less than 20 FPS!!! I mean im getting fps 10,15,13 and stuff no where NEAR what i got before. Can someone please tell me what happened for it to happen this way? I never played around with any files during that time, all i did was surf the web, and play The Battle For Wesnoth. Please help!

PS: My video card is a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 128MB
