[mythtv-users] What is a normal X CPU usage?

I've read what I've found in the archives (not that "X" is that easy to 
search for) but I'm still wondering; what is a "normal" CPU usage level 
for X? My mythbox is a Pundit running in mirror mode at 720x576 using the 
2/19 drivers from Winischofer, and on my 2.4GHz P4 I get an X usage of 
5-9%. A lot of people seem to get as low as <1%...

Are there any Pundit users who go this low? What's the secret XF86Confif? 
I've checked for NoAccel and XvOnCRT2. Do I need to run in MergedFB or 
Xinerama mode to make xv-acceleration kick in?
