Even after a couple of days tinkering with my Ubuntu/Wine install to get Steam set up properly, it required more tinkering to get Counterstrike running. And even more tinkering to get Diablo 2 running. And even more tinke.. You know what? I think you get the picture. Suffice to say that I didn't like it.
If you want to play games on a budget computer, use Win XP on some bargain bin parts, and "acquire" some previous generation games like Far Cry, Morrowind, Half Life, Unreal Tournament 2k4, etc, etc. You will thank yourself later.

Personally, I would never recommend putting Linux on a machine you intend to be a gaming rig. You will almost always have issues playing games through any sort of emulation like Wine, however Valve has been a huge supporter of getting games to Linux, and Steam runs in Linux. The other thing to consider is hardware support. A lot of times you will find that cutting edge gaming video cards don't always work so well in Linux.
If you have any questions you can feel free to PM me, or visit my new forum that I launched a couple months ago with some of my Linux admin buddies. The forum is new, so doesn't have much content or members yet, but we are hoping to one day grow it into a resource for all likes of Linux users and admins. The site is:
All of the members there I know personally, and they are all great people and very knowledgeable admins.

Aside from that, Ubuntu is nice if all you do is serf the web and use open source software.Other than that it is a pain in the rear if you don't have the time to tinker with the settings.
