>From 'man 4 radeon' shipped with xf86-video-ati-6.12.2:

       The  radeon  driver  supports  PCI,  AGP,  and PCIE video cards
based on the following ATI

[ skip first 27 chips ... ]

                   Radeon X1200/X1250/X2100

[ also skip subsequent lines for Radeon HD variants ]

So I *assume* that the ati driver will work a lot better than the
vesa driver on your hardware, even if the vesa driver is able
to drive your hardware.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
