This has been discussed many many times in past. I suggest you search in
google groups for this topic.

From personal experience, ATI and Omega are both EXCELLENT drivers. Omega's
enable better overclock support for some chips (SE versions) and support
Mobility series. Which is why I use them on my m10pro laptop.
Omega often have better tweaks for games, so they tend to increase
performance or IQ (or both) as opposed to ATI ones..

From what I see here, the Omegas seem to have less install/upgrade
problems.

I would think there's probably a lot more people here using stock Ati
rather than Omega drivers, so we should expect to see more problems.

Pure guess is, per user of either, they probably have equivalent
levels of problems.

Hm, of the people I know from various forums, the majority uses the Omega
drivers, and so do I.

I've been using Omegas since 3.7 and will continue to use his drivers
OVER the ATI ones everytime. I don't update my drivers until Omega
puts out his version of the latest. His driver package is amazing, and
if you don't at least try them you're missing out.

He regularly posts at www.Driverheaven.com forums.

"of the people I know from various forums" - very possibly. However,
if you were to poll _all_ the people who post here, I would suspect a
large majority would use stock Ati drivers and, of Ati card users in
general, even more so.

Used Omega drivers for initial install.

Don't leave home without them.
