    Seams to be one of the cases, where the i7 really sucks. Another extreme example of this is the Windows game "Bioshock", where the 3 GHz i7 gets beaten by an 2,33 GHz C2Q. Overall for gaming the 220€...

    ...as long, as your card isn't to old. GF2 and older aren't supported with Xorg 1.5 or 1.6 at all (no, this "nv" driver isn't better than just vesa).

    I wonder, why intel doesn't select a way as the propietary ATI and nVidia drivers for that damn thing. At least for now this missing driver is a showstopper for Linux on more and more netbooks :/
