    That could explain things. Is the AMD CPU really that bad that was used in the benchmark? I'm using an overclocked Intel Core i7 myself and have better framerates with my GTX 580 OC.
    I usually got much less frame rate in source games at Linux for my GTX 550ti than most benchmark. Even when I am playing in 1366*768 and this benhcmarks have much more resulation. I think my AMD Phenom X4 955 Quad core CPU is the bottleneck. AMD cpu's have some serious issues with source games on linux.

    TF2 lately got extremely cpu dependent as it also only uses 2 cores.

    -> cpu benchmark/ comparison to windows would be pretty amazing!
    Source engine has always been heavily CPU dependent.

    Phoronix: Updated NVIDIA Benchmarks On Ubuntu With Team Fortress 2

    For those curious how Valve's popular Team Fortress 2 game is performing atop the Source Engine with Ubuntu 13.10 and the latest NVIDIA Linux drivers, here's updated benchmarks as we compare nine graphics cards spanning several GeForce generations.

    http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=19321
    I did a quick test with my GTX 460 1024MB and results look much better:

    http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...SO-TF2NV331262

    On very high settings (8xMSAA, 16x Anisotropic filtering, Bloom enabled) I got 113 fps on a 1680x1050 resolution.

    Why not read the install folder from the Steam config file? It is available and easily readable in .steam/root/config/config.vdf.

    I don't know what is the problem but tf2 profile with PTS don't run on my machine. It just could not start tf2. Might be because tf2 is not installed in the steam folder in my home directory but in a separate steam directory. Or may be because I am using Kubuntu?

    I call this the 'linus finger effect' . who uses 'finger' any more . . . .

    Retest with 319.x .

    I hope valve have done enough testing not to ship post 319 .. it isn't like nvidia would intentionally damage Steam like right?

    I have used 325.xx drivers and also 331.xx beta driveres for months on Arch Linux without any problems.

    Happy birthday!
