I got a problem after last update, i can’t launch any game (i already had this
problem before, but only with some games).
Here is the message i got when trying to launch a game (with or without wine):
X Error of failed request: BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext) Serial number of failed request: 311 Current serial number in output stream: 315

Even if i downgrade, i’ll still got issues, so downgrade is not the solution
I have a similarly old card, same issues and I read this as 'go buy a real graphics card' ;P

A somewhat similar thread, but I'm not sure if this solution would work for you: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=151044
But disabling GPU acceleration is not a solution, as the game will be too slow to play
Have you tried running uxa instead of sna?
I'm talking about
Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
I can't really test it because my gpu hangs w/o the acceleration disabled.

I had a similar issue on my x86_64 system. The solution was to install the lib32-intel-dri package.
