Hello,
I'm trying to start Xorg but it throws an error. I tried reading different topics with similar error but it didn't help.
Gentoo is running on vBox.
Main Hardware/Software: I7 2600k, HD 7950, Win 8.1 64bit, vBox v. 4.3.18
For simplicity I've used genkernel

At the top of the snippet, it lists the drivers in order of preference. Then it tries them one by one until it concludes that none of them exist.

Your emerge --info contains

is key to your understanding and solving this.
VBox fakes a whole PC in software, not related to your real PC at all. Well, the fake system will appear to have the same CPU as the real hardware but similarities stop there.

Run lspci in VBox and again an the real hardware - note the differences, you need to configure your guest Gentoo to suit the hardware it finds inside VBox.

I'll stop short of giving you the answer. That would spoil your fun but ask again if you need more help
