Now I am fairly new to linux/wine in general, and several games, including halo and trackmania give me a dialogue box stating I have out of date drivers for my geforce 3 card, although I have an X1400 mobility. Trackmania will still run, albeit not very well, but halo crashes right after the first screen. Some games, including counter-strike do not work at all (I start the game, and nothing happens). I understand that alot of games aren't compatible with wine, and I do have a windows desktop to play them, but I like to experiment with different setups, thus my foray into linux. If anyone has an answer or can point me in the right direction, it would be most appreciated.

You can try upgrading to the latest version of fglrx that supports the x1400 if you have not already, newer versions of fglrx are more stable, but also drop support for older cards.
