    Question about frame rates

    How are ATI Drivers these days?

    I was VERY unpleased with the 5870 / Cataylst 9 and 10 drivers under Windows XP, after upgrading to 7/32bit all of my driver issues vanished, and I freakin love my 5870, which is my first ATi card in at least half a decade of frequent hardware upgrades
