More on the Radeon (after upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10):

bryan@baal:~$ glxgears

bryan@baal:~$ lspci | grep ATI
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV730 PRO [Radeon HD 4650]
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc R700 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4000 Series]

Now I'm really curious how actual games perform. This certainly hints at quite an improvement over the ~3K I was getting before.
