Radeon Compatibility with Mint

Post by Asrael »

I have inherited an older (windows) PC from my son - Athlon II, Radeon HD5770, 8Mb ram, SataHD.
It wasn't booting when I got it, but it is now working nicely :D
I've installed Mint many times but always on an Optimus laptop with Nvidia discrete graphics.
My question is: before I trash Windows and install Mint, how well supported are AMD graphic cards - and in particular the Radeon variety?
A quick search of the forum doesn't seem to contain a lot of threads about Radeon cards and some of them are quite dated (as is the video card I'm talking about).
Any help appreciated!

Apologies,
I came into the forum via search and so missed the sticky on AMD cards - please ignore my previous post.
