as far as i know, yes... what they do is take the official drivers, and fix a few problems, weather it be, fixing some new messed up stuff, by replacing it w/ older things... and so fourth

cuz i know the new drivers from ati did not support crap for the 9250pro i think it was, and gave me almost NO resolution changes... it was retarded... i'm going to give em a go sometime soon and see if it changes my 3dmark score and crysis performance

I installed those... no luck. I'll be happy if I can just find a way to move my screen position. As it is right now I can only see about 2/3 of my screen, the rest is too far to the right. Is there any program or anything that can do this?

Samsung doesn't have drivers for any LCD TV's. Also, I used my LCD's position menu as much as I can already, it didn't move it enough to the left.

Maybe you should be blaming your stupid monitor that doesn't have drivers.

But my biggest concern is that with the 6800xt, my TV looks gorgeous. Did nVidia go backwards or am I missing something?
