So right now i have a HIS HD 7770 GHz, drivers are the latest 12.8, and i just updated everything else. 4 days ago i ordered a Gigabyte HD 7950 Windforce OC'd to 900Mhz on NCIX.com for $309, UPS's website says its scheduled for delivery today. Now the drivers i have dont need to be updated right, i mean catalyst 12.8 is the lastest driver for any amd card right?
You'll need to reinstall the driver after you install the 7950 into your system. Catalyst 12.8 is the latest driver from AMD, so you don't need to redownload it if you still have the installer file on your system.
