Just be thankful you are not using ATI hardware where everything prior to the 
2400 Series cards were deprecated to "Legacy" cards and all Linux support 
dropped in March ;-) 

(performance difference between fglrx and ati 1066 FPS version 160 FPS, and 
the downclocking isn't present in the opensource driver (not the gpu 
powerdown) and temps are up 25 degrees (you feel it in the laptop palm rest).
