Hey, I'm dedicated to boosting the future of Linux games by showing the world that PC games can run in Linux with PlayOnLinux.
I actually create step-by-step guides to walk gamers through installing, configuring and optimizing their games like:
Far Cry 2
Mass Effect 2
Neverwinter (D&D MMO)
Torchlight II
Drakensang
Diablo II
many more...

Here is the site: Gamersonlinux.com

Do you guys mind if I post my new Guides here also?

The turn off ad-block nag-screen is pretty annoying. Can't even register for the site. I already ticked "allow unobtrusive ads". That should be sufficient. Otherwise a great site. >130 pages of blog entries is pretty impressive and very resourceful.

For those who are interested, I just wrote a blog post on how I try to unify my my game management on Linux.

Indiedb.com

It also has links to useful little things I cooked up like 80x15 badges for PlayDeb and GOG.com and a Python script for setting custom icons on entries in the games list.

For Linux (Ubuntu if it matters) of course.
Thanks in advance for your answers.

If you have a newer card (starting from the HD-series) I'd recommend the official AMD LInux driver:http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx

here's how you can install them after you've finished downloading (starting 4:20):

@killgore_94 - I would say that the last AMD proprietary driver to support your card under Linux was from 2009 and this driver will not work with the latest versions of xorg-server, Linux kernel and other components of the Linux desktop. When installing Ubuntu, you will be using the open source drivers by default (I think R300g) which are still being developed and improved over time. If you want more advanced drivers you would need to pull stuff from development repositories which is not recommended for people who do not have advanced Linux knowledge (even I do not do it). Anyway, here is a site which shows you the current state of the radeon support in the open source drivers: X.org

Also, every time you upgrade your Ubuntu install or do a fresh install of a new version, you will get updated open source drivers which should improve OpenGL support.

Hope this helps a bit.
