Default Latest Drivers Where?

I come from a TNT2 32 MB card and I just installed a brand new Radeon 9250 128MB card. See it http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...125-153&depa=1

However, I'm used to simply going to www.nvidia.com and going through the ever-so-simple driver update process.

I did install the drivers off of the CD... But as I wrote in my other thread, now Rise of Nations causes my computer to reboot whenever I launch it. This is leading me to believe that perhaps this is a driver issue.

ANyway, how do I get the latest Radeon 9250 drivers? I went to ATI's website and it gave me these options for a RADEON card:

# CATALYST 5.4 Windows XP - Driver Download

# ATI Multimedia Center 9.06.1

# HYDRAVISION - For RADEON and Mobile ATI Products

# CATALYST CREW Feedback

I have no idea what to do. Thanks!

Try the Catalyst driver and see if that works for you.
