As others have written, you probably need a proprietry driver
to get really good 3d.  Depends what you want it for though,
I've heard the latest intels are not that bad.

The card I have is a Leadtek Nvidia 6600gt, it was at a
sweet spot when I bought it; it's now down to $135 at some

You'll have to tell us what you want it for though for
us to really advise you...
