Athlon 64 3700+, 2 GiB RAM, Nvidia GT240
Gentoo 64-bit, compiz, nvidia-drivers 304.60

Serious Sam 3 at 1024x768 with automatic configuration: 15-20 fps
Amnesia: runs seamlessly (compiz benchmark shows 85fps, but this looks irrelevant because vsync is turned on and there is no tearing on my 60Hz monitor)

Upgraded driver to 310.14:

SS3 now runs at about 30 fps avg, but still drops below 25 too often. Well, at least it's playable now.

shatsky, don't even try running SeriousSam with 304 drivers. 310 is required.

Its actually playable on my i7 2600k (using the on board gpu). I'm getting good framerate, I just have to keep it on the lowest settings to it looks kinda ugly. But its fun!

i5-2500k @ 3.3Ghz
GTX 560Ti 448 Core
8GB 1600Mhz RAM
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, pretty much newly installed

SS3 @ 1280x1024 runs at a solid 60 for me on medium

World of Goo: Lag to the point of unplayability. Odd, since the 64-bit version from the Humble Bundle runs flawlessly on my machine. I speculate that it's due to Steam using the 32-bit binary.
