You'll see proper system information for AMD 7xxx such as 7970 instead of 7xxx in System Profiler. You can also use AtiConfig and AtiPorts flags with 7xxx framebuffer definitions. The garbled boot issue on these cards remains... best bet still is to use integrated graphics if possible as your 1st priority.

Im sorry im having a hard time understanding what you just told me, excuse my noobness.
are you saying that i wont be able to use my card?
and what is this Ati config thingy you speak of? is this some kind of workaround?
If it is can you tell me in detail how to do it?

Has anything new come up to get around the chimera gibberish problem? I got this rocket of a 7970, but I can't use it without going through unibeast! I miss my mackenmonster...
