That looks like something graphically, that is not used by wine. I'm
sure you got that impression too, though.

Have you checked out the "useful wine registry keys"????


there is probably some useful tweaks in there for you.  I utilize a
few, but my focus isn't gaming. Read through the page though. I see
there are tweaks for graphics cards.

I believe if you google a bit, you can also find a post in the ubuntu
forums, that is all about "wine and gaming".
The writer of that page, offers some good tips for gaming in wine,
tutorials and just good tricks in general...
there are also tweaks for Nvidia cards in linux, that might improve
your performance, as well.  Most of these, would be tweaks in Xorg.
