I don't use Pulseaudio at all and it's not even installed. I have disabled the Steam community, and even if I hadn't, it wouldn't explain why Soldat or other games don't work.

Generally speaking I've had a lot more success with this Intel card than what I've had with my old Nvidia card.. And don't even get me started with the clusterfuck that it ATI drivers. 

Also, this is a Dell OptiPlex workstation which doesn't have AGP or PCI-E slots, so I'd have to go with this integrated or some old PCI card. And, unlike some, I can't afford to buy new hardware every so often, I'm just a poor student.

Thanks for the tip. I'm actually using GEM and UXA right now. However I couldn't get KMS to work (X was unbearably slow and crashed within moments of starting), but that's another issue altogether. I was adviced to try again with 2.6.30, and that's what I'm going to do as soon as there's the first release of .30 with genpatches.

Thanks, I'll try them later tonight or tomorrow.

I've tried different values for dxlevel (70, 80, 81, 90), and none of them work.

Yes, I am sure. GT8800 is a lot faster card, but the 965Q has been enough for me. 
And glxgears is *not* a benchmark. I have seen worse cards do bigger FPS and better cards do worse.
