Question nVidia GeForce FX5900 + lastest drivers = 1300fps????

The topic says all....After getting it working, i got 1300fps on glxgears with 100% CPU load. That means the card is not using AGP? If that's the case, how can i solve it? I got agpgart enabled as module in the kernel, but it's not loaded. Whenever i try to load it, insmod says there's no agpgart.o (defenetely not true).

Please i need some help. Thanks to all

No, it means your not using the glx 3d extension. So your using software 3d. Check and make sure glx is loaded and working properly before blaming agpart. It can use nvidia's agp as well.

Mmmmmm glx is loaded when X server starts. There's the line saying Load glx, and playing UT2003 at 1280x1024 all at max, it works like a charm....So, (IMHO) i don't think i'm using only software 3D (again, i'm not sure of that)....
