what exactly is the issue? Are you using opensource xorg drivers, or the FGLRX ati/amd driver? Your card is definitively supported by the former...

I had actually tried using both but none of them works well. The display does work but it doesn't run smoothly as compared to nvidia and intel onboard graphics that I have.

screen tearing?
if so then enable anti-tearing in the amd config tool and set vsync in compiz (make sure 'sync to vblank' is checked):
