Nouveau For A $10 NVIDIA Graphics Card?

When kicking things off with Warsow, at 1920 x 1080 the GeForce 9600GSO is pushing out an average of 38 frames per second on Nouveau. Meanwhile, the same graphics card with the NVIDIA binary driver is up at 63 FPS. The XFX GeForce 9600GSO is slightly faster than the GeForce 9500GT on Nouveau, about the same speed as the GeForce GT 220, but well behind where the GeForce 9800GT is on the open-source driver. It still looks like the GeForce 9600GSO on Nouveau still has clocking issues. With the binary driver, the GeForce 9600GSO is much faster than the GeForce GT 220. At least the Nouveau driver performance under Warsow was much better than the tested Radeon graphics cards in this stock open-source configuration (the Catalyst driver happened to be broken for this test).
