I currently have a 9600 pro (power color) . Since the make isnt that good and my mobo isnt that great either , i am forced to run the card at a 4x speed. I dont see any major performance drop as such. Till now i have been using 4.3 catalyst drivers with the good ol control panel where you could turn of fast writes/ adjust agp speeds. Since i havent followed the release of any other drivers could some one suggest me a stable one ? keeping 9600 pro in mind.
I could be wrong here , but as the cards are getting faster , do they even try to enhance the ones released before in the new drivers ? I think the time when i had a tnt 2 , and gforce series came out , the new drivers infact made things more slower.
I had tried a set of drivers which came along [ati , dont recall the version though] with a fancy control panel but i think it was all pointless and ended up hogging memory. in short i am looking for stability + cp
It usually works, when it doesn't just revert to previous stable setup, even if it's the complete 5.11 driver. Either way it's better than what you currently have. I can't say it'll work 100% of the time, as some don't work 100% of the time when you install the bundled pakcage.
Just remember you want JUST the DISPLAY DRIVERS. Just a reminder.
