Default ATI card owners : Which Catayst Drivers are you using?

What's up all. I was just wondering what Catalyst drivers you ATI owners are using?

I was using CATA 5.6 with my X800XT PE and i was getting close to 6,300 in 3DMARK05 with a P4 3.4Ghz. NO OCin

After rebuilding my PC, I downloaded and install CATA 5.8 with the same GFX & CPU. My last bench was 5845 in 3DMARK05. NO OCin

Has anyone found this same result? I think i'm going to reinstall 5.6 again... If I can find it.

3DMark05 doesn't mean a thing. Use whatever drivers make your games play smoothest.

My games play smooth with either driver. Obviously there is some performance difference between the two. CAT 5.6 benches better then 5.8.

Plus I was asking if any ATI owners found the same thing???

5.7 were the best drivers for me, it seems. Doom 3 played smoother with them than with 5.8.
