Radeon HD 6850 support

Hey Everyone,

I am getting his new graphics card for my build, and since I'm gonna install Linux, I wanted to ask if Xorg supports ATI Radeon HD 6850 gpu. The card I'm buying is :


So far I have used on-board graphics card, so I wasn't sure if it is supported by Linux. A little research did reveal that ATI's proprietary drivers are buggy and don't seem to work.

and is there any open source drivers ?
Thank you.
