Unhappy Xinerama isssue with 3 monitors (slow and laggy)


I currently have my monitors set up as an extended desktop using Nividia's Xinerama function.

Everything works sweet, except it's acting slow and lags out.

It all works out fine when Xinerama is disabled.

At the moment, I'm using CentOS with Gnome, but I've tried other distributions with the same outcome. I've read all over the internet and found no fix for this.

Any ideas?

If I can't a fix I'm going back to windblows.

Computer specs:
  • 3 monitors
  • 2 Nvidia GTX 275 GFX cards
  • EVGA 4-way Classified motherboard
  • 12 GB ram
  • CentOS - with Gnome

Never heard of it 'till now. I installed "libXrandr-devel.x86_64 : X.Org X11 libXrandr development package" do you know what's next?
