well mine is done at 1280x1024 at default size of the window. My 
computer is a athlon-xp 1800+ w/512MB and a GeForce3 Ti 200. I guess the 
optimizations when compiling X made the difference. Next time I just use 
the defaults, or might even do some benchmarking(if I have lot's of time 
;-) ). Have to install some other things first though (image magick, 
opendx). Just finished installing teTeX, ghostscript and gv (phuh!).
