Hello everybody.

I just bought a nice notebook with an ATI mobility Radeon HD 5870, that I will hopefully receive soon.

This is my first ATI card (i got tired of the NVIDIA rebranding thing) so i'm kind of new to this world. I have some questions.

-which driver should I use for my card? The proprietary or the open source?
-Is there support for my card already or I'll have to wait before installing linux on my notebook?
-What do you think about the card? Is it a good choice (I will use this notebook mainly for games on windows, but I would like to have a small working linux partition on it)
