HD 6870 driver .

hi i just got an radeon hd 6870 :bounce: but now i need some help
finding the driver , 10 years using nvidia i never used ati before . not that i am stupid but it
says here :

Previous ATI Catalyst

Note! AMD Catalyst™ 10.11 does not provide support for the AMD Radeon™ HD 68xx series of graphics cards. Full support for these graphics cards is targeted to be available in the AMD Catalyst 10.12 driver release.

i know haw to install the driver but which
one do i download ? the Catalyst Software Suite (64 bit) English Only 41 mb ?
or the AMD Catalyst™ Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) Technology Edition 91 mb ?
and what is that for? anyway ? and is that hot fix important ? :

In the meantime, the AMD Catalyst 10.10e Hotfix driver can be obtained here: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/gpu88-catalyst-10-10e-hotfix.aspx
