Could you provide further infos on your system ? exact system version, kernel version, amount of ram, etc.
And I would always try an update of my system software (e.g " sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade " into your terminal)

Install latest catalyst beta driver or buy a NVIDIA card.

Yes he's right. But buy a new one (as newer model), you won't have problems with it.

I would not say that unless all other possibilities are gone. You can try:

Install new drivers
install new kernel
update your system
if possible upgrade to 13.04
Install "sudo apt-get install indicator-cpufreq" and reboot, and then put your CPU frequency at PERFORMANCE

Do whatever you want, but don't buy a new card yet. It's too soon. Probably, as Albart said, install the latest Catalyst Beta, a lot of users reported performance improvement with it.

Thank you guys!!!

Before buying a new card, you could also install windows on one partition only to play - i think its better than investing in a new card and throw away the "old" one.
You can get these windows images for free anyway and use as long as you want without activating.

you can have the lastest kernel here : http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.10-rc6-saucy/http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.10-rc6-saucy/

( 42m deb ) choose between 32bits or 64bits.

Lastest drivers : https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa
GLGL

ps: install kernel before lastest drivers.

One thing you can also try which a lot of people seem to overlook is adjusting your game graphics settings (and or settings in video card options, catalyst in your case)

I'm not talking about minor improvements to performance by lowering graphics, I'm talking about the possibility that your card/driver doesn't handle certain graphics options correctly which is giving you a very substantial performance drop.
If you play with the options you might just find only 1 or 2 options you can turn off which will make the game completely playable for you.

For example, at one time in TF2 there was a single option I could turn off to give myself an increase of 40FPS.
(the problem isn't there any more so I can turn that option on, but it just goes to show you that it's possible)

I just reboot my system.
After I installed all updates and drivers I didn't reboot my system
Stupid :)

LOL
For how long have you been a Linux user?

USUALLY you don't need to restart unless it's something related to the kernel or drivers, as happened here.

It's a lesson learned today =)
