I have bought a Creative Blaster GeForce 4 MX 420.
I want it to be 100% optimized, because the rest of the machine is very slow.
I know there's USE vars to optimize video cards, which does it for my card?

After setting these new vars i would have to compile Xfree86 again. But what next?
Is there any apps that should be started, configs to be edited/tweaked, XF86Config?
Tips of any kind is helpful!

Thanks for any response :wink:

NVIDIA drivers are in binary form, so there is little optimization possible ;)

There is also an nvidia-clock utility (i think it is called nvclock) which makes it possible to set clock/memory values for your Geforce.
It's even in portage: media-video/nvclock

you may want to use nvidia's agp driver

Option nvagp "1"

other than that make sure you're running agp4x, etc..

you can cat the card to see what's running
