Right here goes on how I fixed this.
After uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers multiple times, it wouldn't successfully install the catalyst drivers without some form of issues.
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
This removed all the AMD drivers or what was left from previous installs.
sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current
Both of these commands then removed what I had from Nvidia drivers.
I then rebooted and instead of installing the AMD drivers from apt-get I used the additional drivers in the system menu. They installed fine and i rebooted again. And boom! They were there.
The thing was I had tried using the additional drivers option before only for it to fail. but not to bother it worked and im now using the latest drivers. I made a complete hash of this one and its not a great solution but a solution nevertheless.
