Unfortunately the 14.x branch of fglrx is very buggy. Even I have issues with it and I have an ancient video card... (OpenGL threading issues.)

If you don't want to play games, stick to open source drivers (they are better in every way except for gaming performance). If you really need the gaming power, you'll need to use something older than 14.x, which also requires using an older kernel, which probably also requires using an older distro.
