Nvidia performance help

I was on another post last night and asked this, but I thought I'd start a new thread in the newbie section and ask everyone... hope that's ok. I've done a few google searches, but havent found anything definitive yet. If there's any more info I can provide let me know (you might need to tell me how to get it too )

I'd like to know if there's any ways to increase my performace with the graphics card?
My stats:
P4 1.5 ghz
768mb Ram
GE Force FX 5500 128mb
Debian Sarge 3.1
Kernel 2.6.8

Here's my current glxgears readout:

5442 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1088.400 FPS
5318 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1063.600 FPS
5435 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1087.000 FPS
5471 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1094.200 FPS
5494 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1098.800 FPS
5436 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1087.200 FPS
5494 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1098.800 FPS
5379 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1075.800 FPS
5443 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1088.600 FPS
5498 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1099.600 FPS
5451 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1090.200 FPS
5424 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1084.800 FPS

This seems slow in comparison to other readouts I've seen.

I've upgraded the driver to the latest version: 1.0-7667 and changed my XF86Config-4 accordingly. And I've followed these instructions:

I appreciate any help!!

It depends on how big the window was, and what else is going on in your system.
Also there are extra options, check the README file that comes with the drivers.

I just did that (dont know why I didn't think of it before) and made a couple of adjustments that should have been done in the installation, but I'm a newbie and dont understand some of that other configuration stuff towards the bottom.

It didn't make much of a difference, anything else?
