I last installed Gentoo over a year ago, and I didn't care about effects and all that... I recently decided to rebuild my Windows computer as a Gentoo box to refresh my skills. Now I'm faced with gnome 2 that looks like every other gnome I've seen in the past 5 years, and I'm thinking I must have to configure something... I used to have Compiz working, favorite plugin was the cube. I have read that Compiz and Gnome 2 don't play together. What effects are available, and how do I enable them? Here's my lspci:

This is my first time trying to use an Intel graphics card for this, so I have no idea what to expect. I have multiple displays (2 of them). I'm not married to Gnome- if KDE is a better choice, I can just reformat and reinstall... I'll take any suggestions.

Thanks!

PS- rebuilt with KDE instead- Very happy with the result!
