    @Samurai, thanks . One question tho what do you think about updating drivers?
    I'v uninstalled old drivers ,ran a driver cleaner then installed the new version. Other times I' v just installed over top. Odd time I seem to get a conflict for some funny reason. Like today I installed over top no problem. Just wondering what you do? I have a ATI 9700 pro .

    I do a clean uninstall, and then install new drivers

    Edit* I also use the 23MB version as it's mainly just the drivers. The larger file is just crap that I don't use / need.

    why bother upgrading unless the new fixes are something you need. i have an ati 9700, and i always remove the old driver before installing the new, never had a problem with it. installing over top of drivers cant be a good thing.
