    ?


    I don't need an expensive videocard.


    1 question:
    Which drivers should i use for the videocard? I never had an ATI card.
    ATi Catalyst 6.8 seems to be the latest driver but i've read that the 'Omega Catalyst' and 'NGO' drivers are tweaked drivers to get the best performence

    I'll use the official drivers then

    There are 2 versions of Catalyst 6.8, should I install the 'Catalyst Control Center Package' or the 'Display Driver Only' driver?

    Catalyst package give you the control center, so you can adjust anti-aliasing, antistrophic, brightness, contrast, etc etc settings.

    Display driver only is well, only the display driver version 6.8.
