It will be installed automatically.

See output of

#lspci -vv

driver radeon should be ideal for the card.

I've installed amd-driver-installer-12.6-legacy-x86.x86_64.run from:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...eon_linux.aspx

and it seems to work.

This usually happens due to kernel mode setting.
Your card is perfect for that....
Your kernel does not have a binary blob and so ...
Either install that or disable modesetting.
You can remove the worser amd driver.

The Debian kernel is a "Libre kernel".
The binary blob will be in a package like 'linux-firmware'

See the table in http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon
(or the xorg page for radeon)

BTW just installing firmware-linux-nonfree can solve this problem as well.
