WARNING: This is only true for the V3400 (which is an rv530, equivalent to
the Radeon X1600), not the V3600 the OP was considering buying (which is an
rv630, equivalent to the Radeon HD2600). The V3600 does NOT have 3D support
without proprietary drivers. See http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/ATIRadeon
for details.
