Er o.k. which is it EXA or XAA ?
Why would the radeon driver be better than the radeonhd driver?

Isn't the radeonhd driver more optimized for 3d acceleration?
How do I "install glxinfo and restart X" ?

Second, you have the nvidia driver installed for some reason. Remove it.
Third, glxinfo is part of graphics/mesa-demos. Once you fix those first two problems, install glxinfo, restart X, and show us your new /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and the output of [cmd=""]glxinfo[/cmd]
