Detect refresh rate

If you take a good look at the article, second page, the screenshot shows "detect frame rate" is checked. This I have noticed, significantly slows things down in beryl.
I am using a 6600 GT AGP on a my older 3G P4 and 7300GT PCI Express on Athlon 64 3200+
They both actually fly. And 7300GT is not really a powerhouse, it is a cheap modest 3D card.
The 7300Go on my notebook is another story. Works pretty well until you try to get any transparency.

I would agree with that. I have a 7600GS and it runs beryl just fine, but when I put on the detect refresh rate, everything slows down to a crawl.
