I managed however, with a few mods I could get Team Fortress 2 running full frame rate at correct screen ratio and medium graphics - on Windows. I thought I could then run it on Wine with very small ratio and lower graphics, and I would be fine.

But, before wasting bandwidth and time, I thought I'd run a smaller, easier game - just to see what it was like (after Steam ran badly). So I tried Plants Vs Zombies.

Don't expect miracles with what I assume is an integrated Intel card (is it ?) You really need a good nvidia card to get the best experience out of wine.
