We recommend that you use proprietary drivers supplied by your card's vendor. Please note, that we cannot vouch for stability, and thus offer technical support for open source community drivers.

If your card is on the following list, it's likely that open source drivers will increase general performance and compatibility:
If you decide to use open source drivers don’t forget to install additional libraries that are needed by 32-bit games:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install libgl1:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libtxc-dxtn0:i386
