I know the feeling when I was running Ubuntu on one of my computers, it didn't support acceleration either, GeForce 8800GT, so I installed the drivers, the max resolution was 320x200, felt like my old C64 but with millions of colors. Sound wasn't much better, I did get it to work, after I told Ubuntu to stop trying to output to digital and use analog outputs. My speakers are old but they are very good.

I still think Linux (no matter the flavor) is still user unfriendly. Just try getting help on the internet, the response tends to be RTFM, even though you state that you did and still need help. Ubuntu forums tend to be better though.
