Question AGP Configuration

Hello !!
Itried to run a few linux games the other day and I notice that they were so slow that it was impossible to play !!
I checked the Graphics Card and I found that the linux was seen her as a PCI and not as an AGP ???
What am I doing wrong and how can I change this??

P.S. my card is an ASUS 7700 TI (NVidia chip)
and the distro is SUSE 7.3

what do you mean as PCI? the agp bus runs on PCI, normally (always?) channel 1:0:0. check you have the agp aperture set as high as possible in your bios, other than that, there's probably a differetn reason, maybe you're running kde or some other horrible memory hog like it.

On my old nVidia Geforce2MX card i sow that games runs slow only when OpenGL drivers are not activated.
If you have installed nVidia Linux drivers, please verify that you have respected the instructions of nVidia in installing drivers.

Hey that's the same card I have. I'm a bit dissapointed with it but after configuring it works awesome. Yeah just goto the nvidia site and then the linux download section. the directions are to the 'T'. reboot and should be fine. I have Xfree86 4.1.0 running with no problems. 4.2.0 not to good but hey it just came out. Probably redo from source when i get the chance.

I downloaded the drivers from NVidia as you said I hope they do the trick (I payed a lot of money for that card)
