Problem: installed Ubuntu 12.10 and everything went fine the first time. upon reaching the desktop all 4 of my monitors were working and of course out of order, which is no problem. immediately I noticed extensive lag, going to the unity bar to go to displays it would stagger, and in my case with the specs of my pc I would of expected a smooth fast ride. so instead of fixing the display I went and did all the updates and then rebooted. after coming back it still had the same issue, so I went and checked the update software and checked to see what driver it was using for my gtx 680, I tried all 5 of the options there and rebooted 1 at a time. not a single one worked at all. all the others either broke compiz and no windows or I didn't even have monitors. only the default one would work, but as mentioned caused serious lag but no screen tearing. so I decided to put the screens in order, upon doing that it wouldn't work correctly at all, the screens wouldn't even move, and if I got 1 to move it got stuck there for good. I tried reinstalling 3 more times, all other times it just failed to do any different.
Question: seeing 12.10 is new would it be better for me to try 12.04 is there going to be any fix from that lower edition, I figured 12.10 had better compatibility fixes.
