This is incorrect : for nvidia, gnome-shell is not usable with proprietary driver and nouveau 3d support is still experimental (not supported by nouveau developers) and prone to gpu lockup (it is unusable on a daily basis, trust me).
I can't comment on recent ati, I know r200 is unusable.

They still don't.

I don't remember the minimum hardware requirement for intel chipset.
