What does

$ glxinfo | grep direct

show? If direct rendering is on, then your card is doing its job.

Do you have a clue of searching the archives? A clue on using google? The 
answer I gave you above is far from being the first of a kind...

You might want to be just a little more patient and give people some time to 
read and answer. A couple of hours is usually not enough. I tend to ask a 
question, and then monitor the thread and wait for a day or two for answers 
to accumulate. Besides, it doesn't seem that you have any urgent problem, no 
need to be nervous. And to answer your question, there are people here who 
have quite enough graphics knowledge (myself excluded). But I guess anyone 
will simply refuse to answer if you are not polite (and your tone from the 
above sentence doesn't seem such).

HTH, :-)
