Extreme lag? how do i get rid of it?

Alright... i know... i have a horrible video card.

I have an acer aspire 5002 laptop with an SiS video card.
However, when i had windows installed this computer was capable of running warcraft 3 and original counterstrike, flyff, etc. with no problems or lag. Now on linux, many games wont run. Some simple ones, like LTris and Frozen Bubble run good. Others, like XMoto and Emilia Pinball lag extremely. I'm kinda thinking its any program that uses opengl but im not sure... i dont know a lot about computers... but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Chances are, you can't. SiS has terrible support in Linux, direct rendering will not work on most SiS chipsets. This isn't the fault of the Linux developers, SiS won't release the information needed to make good, fully functional drivers.
