Hello :)

Welcome to the Open Source world, and congratulations on escaping! You are FREE now\\:D/

If you haven't already, you could try having a look at the ATI proprietary driver (Until very recently, ATI specifications were not free so the open source drivers could not get the best out of the hardware... hopefully this is going to change soon).

NOTE: Before you run ATI's installer, you might also want to have a look at this:

All the best:KS
