Maziar - Thank you for the heads up.

I just downloaded and installed an updated driver and CCC for my video card. I did not experience any problems like I did two weeks ago. So far so good.

does it support 4770?
September 13, 2009 1:38:39 AM

^Yes.

@OP: Thanks for the link. Gonna get it on my i7 rig tomorrow.

Whenever I startup my PC it says Catalyst Control Centra has stopped working. Anybody know any solutions to it?
September 13, 2009 4:18:58 AM

Thanks for the heads up.

jv1993, try uninstalling CCC and then Reinstalling it. If you have a registry cleaner, run in after uninstalling CCC (and then reinstall CCC, obviously). When did it stop working and was it working before?
September 13, 2009 4:22:31 AM

Thanks for the quick response, I'll try out your suggestion right now. It has not ever worked for me, I just installed it a few minutes ago.
September 13, 2009 4:28:16 AM

Well, I'd suggest starting a new thread asking this, listing full specs, when you built/got the system, etc. You may have more of a problem than a simple bad install (and we don't want to hijack this thread.)

No problem :)  plz post your experience with this driver when u tested :) 
September 13, 2009 6:13:35 PM

I'll go see if this new driver let's me play video on Ubuntu without hurting my eyes.

I installed catalyst 9.9 on my HD4870 1GB DDR5 yesterday.
Before that I could play Assassin's Creed in above 60fps but now it only shows 28 frames per second.
So I rolled back the driver and it got fixed.
September 14, 2009 2:48:26 AM

No problem with assassin's creed here on 3 4890s, try reinstalling the game it might help.

Does anyone think that the only reason they released these drivers is so that they can release the catalyst 10.0 drivers with the 5xxx series? Seems to be all BS "bug" fixes to me.
September 14, 2009 11:41:52 AM

Well, the next set should only be 9.10 (10 => 2010 and 10.0 is the infintesimally small time between December 31st and Jan 1st) unless you are saying they are changing their number scheme for the 5000 series, which is possible.

I would say those results are all within the margin of error, so 9.9 brings no FPS improvements.
