I also tried to install the drivers from amd website but again i get an error. Is there anything i can do about it???


Same for me installing with kernel 3.8.0-33-generic using the amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.run - from the ATI website - to make Ubuntu AMD64 deb packages to install. They appear to make but DKMS produces a "make.log" with content AMD kernel module generator version 2.1 kernel includes at /lib/modules/3.8.0-33-generic/build/include not found or incomplete when using dpkg to install the deb files. From what I can tell this may be because the .run file only works with earlier kernels (eg) - but that seems wrong to me as surely that would be the first thing to test in the .run script ...
