That's an R515-based card. http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/ATIRadeon
Everything >=R500 is not supported by the radeon driver (not even for 
unaccelerated 2D), this includes the X1300 and everything with a higher model 
number. So yes, you have to use vesa, or the evil proprietary driver. You 
should have bought an X850 or lower instead, these even have 3D support now 
(but a bit experimental for everything >=R300, i.e. >9250).
