Default ATi Catalyst

Ive read about it on the ati website but im still not exactly sure if i need it and the benefits of it.

I currently have a ATi RADEON X300, do you recommend that i install this driver?

If you don't use Catalyst you will use Windows generic SVGA drivers, and thats not pretty in any way.
