I'm not sure about the x850 card, but if it's similar to my x1300 you're 
just sh** out of luck. It's not a matter of being able to install the 
official drivers, it's a matter of ATI not supporting the card with 
official drivers anymore (and the older legacy driver doesn't work with 
the newer xserver)

I've been stuck with the opensource ati driver for some while now. I can 
honestly say buying the ati card was a major mistake I'll never make again.
