How do I go about installing the ATI driver as gentoo doesn't have 8.7.

I'm using the driver right now but its still using mesa and its slow:
Code:
# fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.2)

# eselect opengl set ati
!!! Error: Unrecognized option: ati
Killed

# eselect opengl show   
xorg-x11
