My card, an ATi radeon with half the memory he mentioned, runs all of those fine, and (after a cursory look at the original list) most of the OP's suggestions.

But, your pretty much going to have trouble running any of those games regardless the OS myspacecom. As far as any graphically intensive game on linux even high end machines struggle due to lack of drivers. "not linux fault" Hopefully with the work and pressure these guys are pushing - one day Linux distros will be able to game as well as window or mac.
Rich, I do believe a large number of people turn away from linux because of not being able to game. I myself keep windows 7 on a few of my computers (gamer computers) just for gaming.
