I use 7.3 for my X1950PRO, and it works great. No problems at all. Newest one though, is 7.6...

Default Re: ATI drivers

ok, i was very weary of custom drivers but went ahead and tried omegas ATI drivers and... b1gapple you have the same card as me, though i have the AGP version and **** me what an improvement just with drivers..

im a very precise kinda guy so using CSS or (HL2 engines) "video Stress test"
before:
with 4 tests @ 1280x960 and all settings maxed i got an average of:
118.71FPS

AFTER:
with these new drivers over 4 tests same settings all maxed:
137.72FPS

Then i went on to OC my card by a very small amount to then get :
148.27FPS
im very impressed with these drivers and reccomend them to ATI users.

Default Re: ATI drivers

Yes....forceware is from Nvidia. Omega has drivers for Nvidia cards, as well as ATI cards. I've also heard of this other 3rd party driver, called "war something". I can't remember.

Drivers do affect performance, as it is what drives the graphic card...lol...A good example of drivers affecting performance, is with the HD2900XT. With early drivers, it just plain sucked, and was beatened by it's designated competitor, which was the 8800GTS. Now with every new driver being released, the XT has shown significant improvement, and was able to compare with the GTX or even Ultra, in some cases.
