Omega drivers? That is the second time ive heard of someone using Omega instead of the official drivers. What does Omega give that the official drivers do not?

From what I see, the Omega drivers are tweaked better for gaming performance.

which 3dmark did you use?
And my gfs dell laptop is the radeon 1400hyper something..i cant exactly remember. It got a score of 500 with 3dmark05. I've played some decent games on it and it rung good.
I think its like a half dedicated half integrated card.
I couldnt find where to get good drivers for gaming...can i get a linky.
Thanks.

Yes, plus they use a previous version of drivers, so they are more stable.

From the specs, it points to the 2900 being better... but I guess people just seem to think "nvidia brought out dx10, so they must have better dx10 equipment"
