Low tech games for a high tech world . . . Who says you need a fancy high-end graphics card to play some great Linux games? Heck, who says you need graphics at all?
Three frames per minute? Yes, François, I would call that pretty bad performance. While I admire your desire to reuse old hardware to build your Linux desktop, I have to say that your new system might be a little underpowered for running Flightgear. Of course, mon ami, it is a great game, but you need a more powerful system and an accelerated 3D graphics card. Now, don't look so sad, François. Our guests will be here shortly and tonight's menu features some great games that you can run on the most basic of systems. Non, you must wait until our guests arrive.
