Please provide more information regarding video card or whatever hardware you want to know about. But for the most part the proprietary drivers deliver the best performance in my experience. – Zoke Jan 27 '12 at 2:38

In my experience proprietary drivers gives better performance. Given so little information it's hard to give a more in depth answer.

I agree, in general the proprietary drivers will give better performance, although not always hassle free. If the open source driver gives acceptable performance, the open source drivers are easier t maintain and you get support for them from the open source community. – bodhi.zazen Jan 27 '12 at 6:20
