Doing a quick online search, that graphics card should be supported by the AMD driver built into the kernel, so probably not a driver problem (stay away from proprietary AMD drivers, they are unstable, no longer supported and with modern cards have worse performance than the open ones).

Can you describe in what way the graphics are "very distorted"? Because there are multiple different graphics issues I can think of that someone might describe as "distorted".

My other suggestions would be 1) to make sure that the monitor is plugged into the graphics card and not the on-board output (happens to the best) and 2) to try a distribution that defaults to Wayland, like Fedora, as Wayland has a higher chance of working correctly than X on newer hardware. Even if Wayland fails the same way, that would tell us something that might be useful.
