Maybe because the game uses OpenGL cause Linux has no Direct X ?

TF2 shouldn't use Direct X in Linux, it uses OpenGL to render the video. I don't think TF2 is a Direct X 8 compatible game either, even in Windows. DX9 yes should work.

It uses an abstraction layer to translate the D3D commands into OpenGL.. so those launch options *should* work. I don't understand why you would need to, though..

Saphire Radeon HD 5450 1gb on a "legacy" shall we say socket 939 board in case you're wondering it worked just fine in the short time I had windows installed on this pc

That card is supported. If it does not work you installed fglrx in the wrong way. It could be a bit slow however.
