Right now intel can't compete in performance with ati or nvidia, but are just fine for compiz fusion (mine is an 8800 gts $300 not long ago when I purchased it off newegg). I play games such as Quake 4 in Linux with max everything settings and even though I have coolbits, I never felt the need to overclock. However ATI can compete in performance, but I'm looking forward to their open source drivers. I may switch over when it is time to upgrade and they've got their open source drivers out. I also understand to go to open source takes a lot of time and government approvals, etc.

I am not sure what this has to do with Fedora 9, but I will say that ATI
has some really good drivers for linux now. They may not be open source
yet, but they are nearly on par with nVidia. Check out Phoronix
(http://www.phoronix.com/forums/) for more info.
