Thanks for that. The distro is pretty cutting edge at 13.04, so I
thought there could have been some problem caused by its newness lol.

Yes I found that tab in the 'software and updates' dialog. Thank you.
The 310 driver is well worth trying, if you haven't already. It is
said to double the performance over 304:

"Comparing 304.51 driver performance of 142.7 fps versus 310.14 driver
performance of 301.4 fps in beta build of Left for Dead 2. All tests
run on the same system using Intel Core i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz with 8 GB
memory, GeForce GTX 680 and Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit."
