AFAICT the Shell does not need a top notch 3D card and binary drivers.
For instance, I can run it comfortably on a couple laptops I have at
home: one is about 3 years old with an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 130 (G86),
the other is a 5 years old Centrino with an ATI Radeon 9700 (r300).
Both are running with the open source drivers available in Fedora 15.
