I've got an X2 5000+ in mine and I don't really notice any sluggishness.
I'm running Ubuntu Feisty (x64 version). The Gig-E worked out of the box
on Ubuntu (I originally tried Gentoo and couldn't get it to work with
the ethernet so I gave up and just went with Ubuntu :p)
I'm using VGA as well. I tried HDMI, but I had two problems. First, for
some reason I wasn't getting a 1:1 pixel mapping, so text was really
hard to read (VGA has no such problems). I didn't look into too much
because of the second problem: the HDMI socket is *really* close to the
optical S/PDIF socket and my optical cable (which is, admittedly, fairly
old) was a bit too chunky -- I couldn't plug both in at the same time!
So I just stuck with the VGA cable...
