I have a new 7800GT and it runs perfectly.
Had to install the drivers manually (emerge kept breaking everything)
but it is really really awesome.

aa@bluepoint ~ $ glxgears
57792 frames in 5.0 seconds = 11558.400 FPS
68485 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13697.000 FPS
68615 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13723.000 FPS

This was while running 8 desktops with at least one application of some
sort or another running on each one!
