No it dosn't. That is the minimum requirements which ussually allow
you to run it at aboiut 15 fps on lowest detail...
* NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT or ATI Radeon® X1600 or better
is the recommended requirements

(But I haven't played much games under Wine recently...)

What difference does the nVidia driver versions make? (Seems like most
cards support the 256.* drivers)

Doen't the game have an OpenGL mode (many Blizzard game do) that
should run at full speed?

You're sure that the slowdowns aren't something obvious like a lack of
32-bit OpenGL / too many debug messages? (Posting logs to pastebin if
its long or here overwise might help...)

The resolution ussually have a huge impact on performance...

It should be interesting to see a comparison of StartCraft 2 on the
SAME PC between Windows XP, 32-bit Windows Vista/7, 64-bit Vista/7 and
32-bit Linux (64-bit Linux should work as well, but setting it up with
the right libraries is harder)
