Currently ATI X200 > X3000 but that's purely because of the poor G965 chipset drivers.
With newer drivers about to be released (Version 14.26) the performance would be better than ATI X200. Version 14.26 will add full Hardware support for Pixel Shaders and would be DirectX 9.0C compliant.
I am waiting for the drivers...
The current performance is also OK. I can run Half-Life 2, Far Cry etc. on low settings.
3D Xgl Desktop on GNU/Linux works like a charm with no slowdown...
So, X3000 is not that bad... and with newer drivers it would get better.
