hey guys so i was wondering if the sapphire hd 6870 would work with windows xp home edition service pack 3? i know this os is old and its a very new gpu, but im just not ready to upgrade os's yet. anyways so i looked up the amd drivers for the hd 6870 for xp and i only see a hotfix and its only for xp professional editions. heres the link:

Download the driver for a HD5xxx series card install it and then the hotfix! If the driver refuses to install maybe the hotfix first.

so the drivers dont really matter than right, since they should all be the same?

Yes if you look for drivers for different cards of the newer generation they are all the same for specific OS.
