That is incorrect. There is catalyst/fglrx support for Fedora versions 
_up to_ Fedora 11. *Only* Fedora 12 is not supported by the proprietary 
drivers because the Xorg version is incompatible.

Given the nature of the chipset, I would suggest the OP to run F11, and 
wait for F13. I was in a similar position (I own an RV770) earlier last 
year with F10, but the progress of the radeon drivers have been fast 
enough to catch up with the latest chipsets in one release cycle. So I 
was able to have near complete 3D support before the F11 release date.

Open source is the future. It sets us free.
