Hello, now that I want to swith my desktop from Opensuse to Funtoo I remmember that some of the AMD cards requier a seperate binary only proprietary driver. The Linux kernel has been upgraded several times since 3.0 and so they might have a driver out or I might need to do some magic to get my card working properly, I'm not certain.
Mine is the R7770. Here's the output of lspci:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cape Verde [Radeon HD 7700 Series] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

I would research this myself, however, I'm not sure where to start since if I did a web search I'll undoubtably get a bunch of outdated info.
