Default ATI Catalyst Drivers Question...

My current videocard is a ATI Radeon X1550 manufactured by MSI.

Whenever I goto update my drivers through Windows Update it shows drivers made by ATI and MSI. So is either better than the other or more recommended?

Currently I'm using the ATI made drivers and have had no problems.

Ignore it, if it works, don't break it.

Gotta agree with Petey. if you are wanting to try to eek out a leetle bit more performance, try Omega drivers: - Home of the ATI & NVIDIA Omega Drivers. ATI

Choose you operating system and then download. Follow the instructions given in the ReadMe and then install.

Omega drivers have been dissected and reconstructed to squeeze out more performance. While they use an older driver set than what is current, that won't be a problem for anyone not running the newest cards.
