I had ATI 9000 Pro 128mb AGP card on my old system and it works wonder with Ubuntu with Compiz turned on. But it can't work two things, Water Effect and one of other effect.
My other system have Nvidia GeForce 9400GT and It can do ALL effects on Compiz and I am able to have Water effect turned on and it was sooooo neato!! (it's eyecandy!!)..
Ah, I don't use any compiz effects and just automatic screen-off save my lappy LCD screen burns.
You can find at Ubuntu Forum for ATI Xpress it's may help..
