Uh, the X1600 works just fine (with 3D support, since Fedora 9 updates) with
the Free Software drivers which are actually IN Fedora, there's no reason
to "upgrade" to a HD4770 which requires the proprietary driver for 3D.

yes, the upgrade is driven also by the huge potential increase in processing power, 600+ shaders vs. 16, 45 nm tech, low power and dvi support as well. I think the 3D support for the 4770 will come along, ATI seems to be pretty consistently playing nice with the community.
