You cannot take comprehensive assistance like this. Mark 2 other questions as duplicate or invalid or something.. and continue with this only.

give the result of

/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p

Thank you.

Isn't 6310 ?

what can you see in the results of command I gave?

" OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics"

I think you are Ok. In Ubuntu (and linux generally) do not "stuck" with model numbers but with id .

You can see the ID of your card (and this is the important) with this command

lspci -nnk | grep -i vga

If that was your question and you have not any other problem , I think you can mark the question as solved.

Thank you.

Do not revert to windows. You can have a Dual-boot of windows and Ubuntu. A regular dual-boot. (not wubi)

You can keep windows only for games. Wine yes it is a good project but games always played smoothly and better on their natural environment (windows)

Thank you.

Well, wine is only an emulator. It can not replace Windows completly.
There are some programs that run well, some even better than on Windows, most programs have some kind of limitations compared to running on Windows, others run slowly and many don't run at all.

To get assistence for a particular game, you should have a look at the Wine application database: http://appdb.winehq.org/
