FreeBSD 5.3 definitely runs on the 7520 chipset, though features 
specific to PCIe are not taken advantage of right now.  I'm working on
that.  The only problem that I have with it is that occasionally there
will be a panic in the ACPI code on shutdown.  I haven't tried X, but
I assume that it will work fine with the onboard ATI graphics chip.
