Yeah high for some reason im not getting high frame rates on my hd 4870 x2 so I was wondering what is the latest driver out there? Can you send me a link to all the things I need for it. I would really appreciate it

Don't worry about me removing all the old drivers since I well be reinstalling my os again.

just go to ati's site or look at the welcome screen in the cat's.


yeah I attempted to do that but they had a few listings wasn't sure what one to use there was a 56mb file and then they had option 2 or w/e so im not sure to only choose option 1

Before when I dl cata 8.10 my frame rates weren't that good. So i thought i dl wrong file ><

The 56 MB file is all you need. The others are for users who just want the driver or a new CCC app. You file had both.

Do other games run at low fps?

Well even when I put settings on medium its same lol....

Ya that is low. I get about 40-50 FPS with DX9 and all the settings at "high"

EDIT: 1920x1200

The FPS is low...but this is why I am selling my 4870x2...driver issues. I am tired of ATI driver problems (dont flame me about nforce drivers 'cause I already know)...but really...I couldn't stretch my desktop to 2 monitors at 3840x1200...WHY NOT?!?!?!

BAH!

Drivers are hell

20-30 is very low for that system. I run 35-52 fps on Warhead. 1680x1050 on gamer setting. It very rarely drops below 42FPS .My system is E8400 @ 3.6, DDR3 10666 4gigs, P5E3 deluxe Asus MB, Antec P190 case, HD 4870 x2, Samsung T260 25.5" 1080P, Bose companion 5 speakers.

My advice for people with Driver problems is to run a dual boot system. I run the Vista Ultimate 32 with two sides, one for games and one for everything else. My game side doesn't have any programs other than games on it. A stripped down version of windows always runs better. BTW i am using drivers 8.10 without any problems.

Before selling the best card to date, you should really try a clean install on a different drive or partition.

Your system sounds similar to mine and my system slaps Crysis and makes it cry.
