First of all, congrats on a VERY nice looking and functional distro, I was origonally using SuSE/Debian and I think I've found my new OS.
I have a radeon HD 4850 and an X-Fi extreme music card (not the best combination to start with, I know ) Sound is working fine with the exception of missing 5.1 but video is another story...
I enabled the restricted driver for the video but was getting a choppy display i.e. when moving a window around with Compiz installed or watching a movie. Initially when going fullscreen it would freeze the whole system but that issue is now fixed by adding 'no-xv' to gstreamer properties. I tried downloading the newest binaries from ati.com, and enabling vertical sync but still no luck, videos are unwatchable. Next step is disabling compiz I suppose, although that's a bit of a shame.
Any help would be very much appreciated as I've spent about 2 hours googling and experimenting. Would hate to go back to Windows 7 but need this working as a multimedia system as it's hooked up to the plasma in the front room.
