We went over this two days ago in another thread. You have the 3D drivers installed for your GPU already. The Intel GMA cards are not high-performance, gaming GPUs.

Personally I would go NVIDIA. Unless you're totally opposed to installing closed-source hardware drivers, then an NVIDIA card should work excellently under any Linux system (the GeForce 7300 GT in my main desktop and GeForce 310M in this laptop work beautifully under Ubuntu 9.04 and Arch 2010.05, respectively ).

Get a discrete video card from AMD or nVidia.

Yup, unfortunately. Although, usually the GPU in a laptop isn't user-replaceable, so... *shrug*

The Intel GMA series video adapters really aren't intended for use with high-end games or other applications that are very 3D-intensive. They're just a sort of "base model" that come in most new laptops, unless you specifically choose one with an NVIDA or ATI/AMD GPU.
