Suse 10.1 and Intel Display driver

I'm using centrino laptop with intel graphic inside.

Do I have to install intel driver from the website, or the build in driver is enough if I want to play 3d games such as counter strike?

I have an Intel i945 graphics chip on my Dell Latitude D620 laptop.

I installed SuSE 10.1 and it detected my video card with no problem during the installation. Then somewhere in the configuration, it asked if I wanted to "enable 3D support" and clicked "yes".

That's it! However, the graphics card is not the best so on some 3D games, it gets choppy. I really don't think that you can even play counter-strike with your Intel graphics card. It's not powerful enough.
