Have you tried it without the OpenGL tag? I get better fps in d3d on my 
system, but different hardware and linux distro may impact that.

Also would be worthwhile to check for a driver update. I use a different 
nvidia card, but my driver version is 260.19.12 so your driver in linux 
may be quite old compared to the windows one it is testing against.

If you have any add-ons remove them and compare again. If you use oRA2 
just ditch it, everything it provided for raiding is in the the Blizzard 
defaults now and that addon seems to cost a good `10 fps in linux.
