Default Newest driver for HD4870?

hey guys i'm not great when it comes to updating drivers, is this the newest driver for the HD4870?

ATI Radeon HD 4850/4870 Driver Hotfix 8.7 Windows XP(x32/x64)

if it is to install, do i first go on device manager and uninstall my current driver, then download this and install it?

Use Driver Cleaner Pro, and erase all AMD stuff then put your new stuff

AMD GAME Drivers & Tools

Get it direct from the source

it's an ATI card dude. AMD own ATI so sometimes people call it an AMD card...

I meant ATi my bad... I guess the program hasn't gotten used to the fact that AMD runs ATi now
