From pci ids list:

71c0	RV530 [Radeon X1600]

The R500 series is not supported by the open source radeon driver.  Until and
unless that happens, you will not get better than vesa support on this card. 
Support requests for this card should be filed in Xorg's upstream bugzilla, at
bugs.freedesktop.org in the Xorg component.
