    Default Gaming with Open Source ATI drivers?

    Edit: The Fedora games spin failed to boot and so i tried running Ubuntu 9.10b with "http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu".
    Now i can finally boot up some games and even got WoW 3.2.x to run.
    (But its severly corrupted )
    Thanks to everyone who posted here, i learned allot.

    Hi, i was wondering how good the drivers for open source ATI drivers are now, when i used Ubuntu 9.04 i was not that impressed but hey, that was some months ago.
    And its not too long until Ubuntu 9.10 gets released so i was thinking of giving linux a new chance.
    (Since ATI moved DirectX 9.0 cards to legacy Windows 7 has not been that good of an experience. )

    I was thinking of games like World of Warcraft or Counter-Strike 1.6 and if the preformance is good enough maybe even Counter-Strike Source.

    My notebooks specs are:

    HP Compaq nw8440
    Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 @ 2,16 GHz
    ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 256mb
    4096mb ram
    320gb 5400rpm hdd

    Anyone got some tips how to get started, i can isntall and test myself but i may need some help or a simple how to since im not that good with linux yet.
    I have managed to set up a Atom / Ion media nettop successfully, but that was purely luck i guess.

    Thanks in advance,
