the test programs in the glut package ( in progs/demos of the glut dir)
the glxgears runs around 2600fps in the initial size, i do have
loads of ram (0.5Gb) - mainly for image manipulation. - that
might make a difference in performance.
my desktop is at 1600x1200. my gfxcard is a ASUS-V7700 GeForce2 GTS (32mb)

how much system ram do you have? do you have the MX or the GTS?
the gts has a pixel fill rate of 800Mpixel/s, while the MX has a pixel 
fill rate of 350 Mpixel/s...which could explain the difference in
performance (800/350 = 2.2 ~= 2.6 = 2600/1000) - and price ;)
see for
a comparison between the GTS and MX hardware.
