getting low performance in games despite using the Nvidia propriety drivers on my Geforce 7900 GTX

Hi all,

I have recently noticed a great reduction in my game performance in relation to a large reduction in frames per second. The video performance is quite choppy whereas in the past it was not the case.

The Nvidia driver version that I have on my system is version 256.35

The operating system - Opensuse 11.3.

I can’t quite remember as to whether I had changed any settings in my Nvidia X server settings program recently.

Does anyone have an idea of what I can do… if there is any other hardware information that will assist in resolving this problem I would happily share.

Thank you.
