I have been using my brand new homebuild pc for about a month now, and i have been playing games as Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike Source and Diablo 3 for quite a while. But today i recieved this message:

WARNING
The catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the Display manager.

I started playing Diablo 3 and the framerate had dropped drasticaly! I have reinstalled Diablo 3, and my GPU drivers several times and still no results. When i went to my windows experience index my GPU's score changed from 1,0 to 5,3.

I am really desperate for advice due to the fact that i have done what I can, and the fact that this computer has costed me all my saved money (16 years old gamer).
I really hope someone out there can help me.
Cheers Jakob

Did you remove your graphics drivers first? IE, boot up in safe mode and delete the drivers?

Use the 12.7beta drivers... they are exceptional drivers.

1) Download Driver Sweeper here.
2) Download Catalyst 12.7beta drivers here but don't install.
3) Custom uninstall AMD software through the "Control Panel" and select everything and reboot.
4) Run Driver Sweeper and clean AMD drivers and reboot.
5) Re-install CCC and reboot.

All done!
I think the problem has been solved, my Diablo 3 runs normally, and i am currently checking if my steam games work propably.
Thank you very much RussK1! You made my day! :bounce:
