Ati Radeon 8500, startx issue

I got a ati radeon 8500 I've been trying to make for a while. (3d)
Downloaded and compiled latest driver dri.sourceforge.net. I got agpgart and AMD760 agp chipset built as modules.
When I've loaded all modules and everything seem to be ok I do startx. The monitor switches to black for a while and there seem to be signal. But after ~7s the monitor switches to standbymode and there don't seem to be a signal anymore. I've to do crtl+alt+delete then.
I've been trying to change the monitor freq two times. But I think this is the driver...
Here are some info about my system.

I'll send XFree86.0.log as an attachment.
Anyone who've had similar issue ?
If I had knowledge about the lousy radeon8500 support in linux I would never had bought it. :(
