All Source games working perfectly on ati 4250 integrated card.
Last times when I tried the source games below ubuntu 12.04.1 these games weren't working. Today I installed the Ubuntu 13.04 and every Valve games working perfectly. I've got 20-25 fps when I play on Ubuntu but on windows 7 I've got 60-80 fps with same settings. It's not too much but at least these games working now. I don't know what happend but I would like to say thanks!

Do you play them in OpenGL mode on Windows or are you comparing them to Microsoft Direct X?

I think the opengl mode doesn't available in windows but I am not sure. I play with source games on windows with direct x mode. On Windows 7 I've got average 60 fps. It's enough to me. Source games on Ubuntu 13.04 have got just 20 fps. So actually the Ubuntu version is slower then windows one but at least It's works.

Sounds like you're using open source drivers.

About the drivers, which one should I use?
I'm quite confused by the drivers. I don't know which one to use. I have a 6950 and valve games run like they were on a super low end graphics card. I don't mind it since it's Ubuntu and still underdevelopment but I would like to know if there is a way to make a better performance.

Whichever works better for you :) You can enable proprietary drivers in the software sources window

You should use the latest beta driver by AMD. Improvments made by the colaboration with Valve go directly into these drivers.

Thank you guys. I'll try the AMD drives and not the open source ones.

Of course he is, ATI HD4000 series are not supported by AMD. The legacy drivers just work with kernel 3.4 or earlier, and U13.04 uses 3.8

It is possible to downgrade X with a ppa, by default it isn't even possible to install legacy drivers in the current version of 12.04 though.

I'd rather use an older distro than open source drivers for gaming.

Well, You can use this ppa on newer distros: https://launchpad.net/~makson96/+archive/fglrx. I got a Mobility HD 3470 and it works, shame its slower than in windows. This PPA is for 12.10 and up, even Raring is supported (3.8 kernel)

Contact AMD. Theres nothing else the linux community or Valve can do.

Nvidia on the other hand are pretty engaged
