Not at all, just one with good drivers.

For now the proprietary nvidia driver is quite good on GF6+ (latest
version), and the ATI radeon driver too (for cards older than Radeon
HD2x/3x/4x).
The proprietary Catalyst driver is crap, and for Radeon-HD2/3/4 there
is currently no accelerating 2D driver at all - not free and not the
proprietary.

Intel used to be good but is performance-wise quite broken because
they re-wrote large parts of it, so I guess it needs some tuning to
reach old speeds.
