HIS HD 3850 (ATI) Driver - Performance

Hi All,

I'm new here as you can see.

So my problem is finding drivers that work for the 3850. I upgraded from my X850XT (AGP/256) to the HD3850 (AGP/512). I have been reading forums since last night and I simply can not find anything that works. Can anyone please give me some pointers on what I can do?

The funning this is, as soon as I turn down hardware acceleration, on the trouble shooting tab, all the way down I get better performance. If I used the full setting my performance on my desktop drops to crap.

Please help :( 

I have tried the following drivers and fixes:

HIS Drivers
http://www.hisdigital.com/html/driver.php
These install fine but the performance on my desktop, just moving explorer windows, is very choppy as if I don't have drivers installed.

ATI Drivers
http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp
These do not install, I get a message stating hardware not supported.

ATI AGP Hotfix:
http://support.ati.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=894&task=knowledge&questionID=31542
These install but I get the same problem as the first driver install.

Omega Drivers:

These install but I get the same problem as the first driver install.
