8500LE getting 75 FPS on glxgears

Alright so I had mandrake 10 installed but I always got a scrambled screen when trying to play tuxracer or counterstrike. I thought I had the drivers installed correclty but maybe not. SO I reformatted as I always do when I can't get something workign. This time I install the ATI drivers the way that worked last time. I killed X then "rmmod radeon" because I would always get an error about not being able to insert something. I then did the fglrxconfig and went through that and I think I edited my XF86Config-4 file and changed the driver to fglrx. So when I go to fglrxinfo I get
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 8500 DDR Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3 (X4.3.0-3.9.0)
but I get like 75 FPS glxgears which sucks and UT2k4 is terribly choppy and unplayable. Also I only get like max of 50 FPS in single player half life. this is my XF86COnfig file
Any help would be great
