The proprietary driver isn't well supported by ATI, it's not an Arch

The answer to the question in the subject is, no, if you need the
proprietary driver you will notice that someday ATI's driver for your
card only is compatible to an outdated version of X.

NVIDIA's proprietary driver support is better. Btw. I always have both
available an ATI and a NVIDI graphics, assumed one graphics should cause
issues, I simply switch between the graphics. However, I only use the
open source drivers, but in combination with linux-rt.
