Hey all! quick question for ya....

I recently installed Enemy Territory to play a mod called ETF (  I got the game working with no problems by installing a few linux packages..

linux_base-8-8.0_6  Base set of packages needed in Linux mode (only for i386)
linux_dri-4.3.0_3   Binary Linux DRI libraries for 3D hardware acceleration of 
linux-XFree86-libs- XFree86 libraries, Linux binary

However upon installing the nvidia drivers I have the option of useing the FreeBSD agp driver or the nvidia one.  ive treyd to use both.  The game runs alittle slow and sluggish so i figured it didnt have hardware acceleration.  So i need to enable AGP.  but then it dawned on not running an agp card.. im running PCIe  (PCI Express, Asus Geforce 6600GT)

So my question is do i need to load some sort of PCIe driver? How can i get the game to run smoothly and not sluggish?

Any suggestions are welcome!
