Default From nvidia to ATI =/

Welp, I did it, I ordered my first ATI product today, the 9800XT, After a good month of debating, I finally did it. Was wondering though, where do i get the drivers for it, is there anything else I need otherthan like powerstrip to deal with my card's overclocking.. etc...
I'm sure I just goto ati.com for drivers, but I think you guys would know better, cheers!

The 9800 cards come with a good driver CD, but ati.com for updates.

This is my opinion, but you really won't need to overclock the 9800XT. It will run plenty fast.

I agree Guy... that is a blazing fast card, and won't need OC'ing for quite a while.

not to my knowledge they havent and i hope they never do - that is the reason i switched to ati. All i need is one driver, not a 15mb file of ALL drivers.

If you check with ATI.com, you'll see that their drivers are organized by family and OS, one set of drivers for all RADEON using ME, one for XP etc...
