It won't work any differently under GNOME, KDE, or XFCE. Compiz is a stand-alone window manager, the desktop environment you use it with only determines which UI it will overlay ontop of Compiz's effects.

But if you don't have a 3D video card you aren't going to be running Compiz anyway; so I wouldn't worry about it.
