Video Drivers for Ubuntu 9.04 - Acer Laptop

I have Ubuntu 9.04 on an Acer TravelMate 4200 laptop. I recently installed the video game World of Goo and it ran horridly choppy and unplayable. I suspect I need to install the proper video card drivers. Can anyone tell me:

Upgrading from Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 fixed the problem. Choppiness is gone. Thanks for all the other suggestions too!

The Intel video driver in Ubuntu 9.04, is pretty bad, I recommend turning the Visual Effects off, (System->Preferences->Appearance (visual effect tab)), Update your Ubuntu the Intel driver is better now.
