Unfortunately games running perfectly there (e.g. Portal) refuse to start on wine complaining about a lack of PixelShader 1.1 (AFAIK my radeon should even have 1.4), 3dMark2001 (old one because I wanted a small download...) reports PixelShader: N/A

Wine can't emulate shaders that are not supported by hardware and/or driver. Direct rendering has nothing to do with shaders and is irrelevant here.

Just get yourself a better video card preferably with working drivers (that exclude Intel and ATI).
