You don't say what ATI driver version you installed, nor where you got it. I'd boot to runlevel 3 and restore the old xorg.conf as a first step.

I would suggest using an ATI package installed from [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories?highlight=(elrepo)]the ELRepo repo[/url] rather than the one downloaded from the manufacturer.
